Field Trip to the
Canadian War Museum
Students will explore how the American Revolution and the War of 1812 shaped life in Canada 200 years ago, and how these events continue to have an impact on Canada today. Through hands-on exploration of artifacts and historical documents, students will piece together the lives of Loyalist and Iroquois settlers after the American Revolution, and Canadian soldiers and civilians during the War of 1812. Students will gain a better understanding of how these and other conflicts on our soil ultimately led to Confederation in 1867.
