Hands-On Canadian History


Category: Product ID: 188834


Canadian history needs to be made more exciting, more interactive, more “real.” I want to help make that happen so I’ve put together 31 activities that you can easily do at home with your kids while you study our country’s history. This product was originally a series for the Write 31 Days Challenge that I did here on my blog. This book combines the whole series with the printables and some extra additional resources.

Here are the topics covered:

  1. First Nations
  2. Vikings
  3. Early Explorers
  4. Fur Trade
  5. New France
  6. Seven Years War
  7. War of 1812
  8. Rebellion of 1837

  10. Confederation
  11. When the Provinces/Territories Joined Canada
  12. The Canadian Railroad

What can you expect?

For each topic, 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.

Wherever possible, I’ve included additional resources so you can learn more or go more in-depth if you want to.

It’s time to take Canada’s history from boring to fun.
