Education

Conflict and Remembrance

Our primary programs introduce young students to the concepts of conflict and remembrance. Through hands-on activities, cooperative learning and immersive environments, your students will learn how war affects people just like them.

“I really like how the program teaches us how to connect with war and make it relevant to the students (it’s not just about guns, bombs,…)”
— Bennett, Lower Elementary Program student, Bishop Hamilton School

Memories of War

Ontario Teachers: Grades 3 to 6
Quebec Teachers: Cycles 2 and 3

Working with “mystery boxes” and several paintings from the Beaverbrook Collection of War Art, students will piece together the lives of six different individuals during wartime. They will examine letters, diaries, photographs, and genuine and reproduction artifacts to discover how war affected a wide range of people. Students will then connect their findings to Canada’s involvement in war, and examine the impact of conflict on their own lives today.
