This is an activity handout that your students can complete while they watch the clip from CBC's "Story of Us". The clip highlights in particular the experiences of Elsie MacGill and Louise Christoffersen.
The link to the clip from CBC's YouTube channel is included on the worksheet. Students can watch independently and complete the worksheet or it can be used for whole class viewing.
This was created for a grade 10 Canadian History class (CHC2D) using the Ontario Curriculum, but it is appropriate for any grades 7-10 class that is learning about the role of women in the Second World War.
