Canadian History Since World War I  CHC2D/2P

Canadian History Since World War I CHC2D/2P

Study the great changes that defined Canada’s twentieth century with a ROM teacher. History comes alive with students examining authentic primary source materials from the ROM's collections. The hands-on lab offers an overview of the 20th century from the Great War to present day. Included are objects originating from the trenches and battle fields in Europe, trendy items from the Roaring 20s, evocative pieces of the Depression and the Cold War and finally post-centennial year items of a very recent past.

In addition to the lab and with a museum teacher, students will visit collections pertaining to this period of history as they are found in several ROM galleries such as Canada, Europe and First Peoples of Canada.

Curriculum links: explore the local, national and global forces that have shaped Canada's national identity; investigate the challenges presented by economic, social, and technological changes; explore the contributions of individuals and groups to Canadian culture and society.

Not available before 10:00 a.m.
