118 Events and snapshot details in Alberta's history presented through maps and images from the Glenbow Museum and the Library and Archives of Canada (with permission and licenses to use)!
Take your students on a visual historic journey through Alberta's past: from the early 1600's and the Hudson's Bay Company and explorers, the settlers, creation of towns, the signing of treaties, Alberta becoming a province, our growing populations, through to the floods of 2013, the tragic fires of Fort McMurray to Canada's 150 Celebration. Students will be able to "SEE" how their province began, changed, evolved and how events built upon each other as they examine the images throughout Alberta's history.
Choose the number of and the specific events that you want to focus on, create a class timeline, sort the posters into categories of "positive", "okay" and "tragic events", examine a decade in more detail as groups, choose an event to research deeper as to how that affected our province, create a "defining moments" infographic, predict what the next 5 or 10 years will look like on our timeline... There are so many ways to think deeper into Alberta's history through the use of the posters.
Check out the preview for all the dates included in this package.
If you need a specific, detailed history of your particular town or city, let me know and I can create that for you! There is SO much more to Alberta's history that can be seen through the images of our past that makes our history come alive!
