Cause + Consequence: Fur Trade in Kamloops (Grade 4)

Learning through artifacts, archival documents, stories, and photos, students will explore the fur trade in Kamloops. Focusing on the causes and consequences of this history, students will use Historical Thinking Concepts to “think like an historian” and chart out not only the immediate impacts but also the longer-term consequences of colonialism that can still be felt throughout Canada today.

Lesson Plan

Ethics + Injustice: Discriminatory Policies in Canada (Grade 5)

As Canada has grown as a nation we can reflect on the collective decisions that have shaped us today, and also think about how those decisions have led to community-building, grassroots movements, and at times injustice. This program will look at two laws, one local and one national, asking students to draw conclusions and make ethical judgements about these past laws.
