Primary Sources help teachers integrate authentic resources into the classroom. Primary sources capture students' curiosity about the past, so they naturally begin to use critical thinking to analyze historical events. This kit uses original documents and photographs to help students understand the history of Canada.

Canada kit includes:

Eight Photograph Cards which includes the Viking Village in Newfoundland, Saint Croix Settlement, Gold Rush in the Yukon and more…

Make social studies content accessible to students with the photo cards in each Primary Sources kit. Each photo card has four general areas on the back for teacher and student use. The top of the card has a brief Historical Background Information section. Along the left side of the card is the Analyzing History section. This includes questions and activities designed to make students analyze what they see and learn. In the Historical Writing section, students are given two writing assignments, one fiction and one nonfiction. Finally, the History Challenge section offers fun extension ideas for the students.

Eight Primary Sources which include a map of Canada in the Nineteenth Century, MacKenzie King's Citizenship Certificate, Canada's National Anthem and more…

Provide students with a deeper and more comprehensive view of historical events through maps, letters, photographs, political cartoons, and more!
