Looking for resources for Black History Month in Canada? This freebie includes a two-page article about an important piece of Canadian history. It includes one two-page article about the Colored Hockey Leagues of the Maritimes and one page of comprehension questions. Students will learn about contributions this trailblazing league made to the sport and how racism impacted the teams and players. Use this article any time of year; sports history is always a good way to engage students and Black history is Canadian history!
After reading, students will:
- Explain how racism is intertwined with the story of the league
- Make a short timeline of events
- Identify consequences (cause and consequence)
I have also included some links to related videos and books that you can share with your students to extend their learning about Black history in Canada.
