Canadian History Since World War I CHC2D/2P

Canadian History Since World War I CHC2D/2P

Changes in culture and identity have shaped the last 100 years of Canadian history. We invite students to reflect on these changes through the examination of thought-provoking objects. 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 the Sigmund Samuel Gallery of Canada, the Daphne Cockwell Gallery of Canada: First Peoples and the Samuel European Galleries.
