For Kids: You can understand more about Canadian culture and heritage today by understanding who some of Canadians' ancestors are, and how they settled Canada. When and why did people choose to come to Canada? How did they interact with the communities of people, both Aboriginal and immigrant, already living here? What traditions and beliefs did these different communities bring and share? This website showcases just some of the pictures and other documents that are part of Library and Archives Canada's collection, and we hope to keep adding more. Tell us who and what you would like to see.
For Teachers: This website is designed for children in grades four to six. The settlement theme has curriculum tie-ins to history, national identity, human rights, culture, multiculturalism, language arts and geography. Educational resources complement the site, including a full teaching unit with an evaluation rubric.
