Canadian history needs to be made more exciting, more interactive, more “real.” I want to help make that happen. For the next 31 days, I’ll be sharing ideas on how to make Canadian history more hands-on.
Over the next month, I’m going to share an activity that you can easily do at home with your kids while you study our country’s history.
Here’s what topics we are going to cover in the next 31 Days:
- First Nations
- Early Explorers
- Fur Trade
- New France
- Seven Years War
- War of 1812
- Rebellion of 1837
- Underground Railroad
- When the Provinces/Territories Joined Canada
- The Canadian Railroad
- Louis Riel / The Metis
- Klondike Gold Rush
- Residential Schools
- Boer War
- World War I
- Halifax Explosion
- Women’s Rights
- The Bluenose
- The Great Depression
- World War II
- Japanese Internment Camps
- St. Lawrence Seaway
- The Canadian Flag
- Official Languages
- Charter of Rights and Freedoms
- Canadian Money
- Great Canadians
- The Prime Ministers of Canada
What can you expect?
Each day, I will share an activity or resource that you can use to get interactive with each moment of history.
Some of them are creative, some are action based, some are printable, some involve research, and others are games that we’ve created for you. I had my kids helping me plan and test our ideas along the way. We had fun putting them all together for you.
Let’s make Canadian History fun!
Want all of these resources (with a few extra?) together in a single package? You can find the 31 Days of Canadian History ebook in my shop!

Soo excited! Thank you!
This sounds like fun!
Oh neat, will need to follow this
This looks fabulous! I am a big believer in hands on learning. Looking forward to your activity suggestions. Thanks for sharing them with us!
I’m excited to see what you share each day! This must have been so much work — thank you for all of your hard work!
Oh this looks interesting! Subscribing for this.
This is awesome!!! I love Canadian history but I agree that the general attitude towards it is that it’s boring. 🙁 Thanks for sharing!!! Can’t wait to follow along. 🙂
Just found this now, saving for our later study of Canadian History, thanks!
This looks interesting. I have a 6yr old. Is this age appropriate for her? Is this a pdf file? And, i’m assuming once you buy it, you can use it at your own leisure?
Right now it’s just a series of blog posts here on the site, but I’m working on making it into a printable file. I think it’s totally usable with a 6-year-old because you can talk about each event as simply or as complexly as you’d like.
