Students analyze the importance of faunal artifacts (bones) and the tools and methods used to hunt, fish and process meats to understand the roles of domestic and wild species in the survival of early Canadian setters.

In this activity, students complete a multiple choice interactive quiz and, at the same time, answer corresponding critical thinking questions from the Bare Bones in the Backwoods Student Handout in their notebooks.
