Filed Trip - Canadian War Museum

Field Trip to the 

Canadian War Museum 

Grade 7: New France and the Clash of Empires
The lives and roles of various individuals at the time of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham come to life with a hands-on investigation of primary and secondary historical sources. Using dramatic events, firsthand accounts and varied perspectives on the Seven Years’ War, your students will explore the conflict that defined daily life for the people of this period, and discover how it changed Canada - and the world - forever.

Grade 8: Conflict and Confederation in British North America, 1775–1867

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 Through hands-on exploration of artifacts and historical documents, students will piece together the lives of Loyalist and Iroquois settlers after the American Revolution, and Canadian soldiers and civilians during the War of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.
Please return forms by Monday Feb. 4th, 2013

Message from Tr.Nancy

Dear Parents,
Assalamu Alaikum

In library class today, we worked on Information Seeking Strategies and discussed the databases that the students had chosen as one of their resources.  For next week, the students will need to complete the Print and Website Evaluation Sheets that was handed out to them today.  The two sheets are to be used as templates and used with all of their resources.

Next Wednesday, we will be looking at the third step in the research process, which is Location & Access. They need to bring all their print material with them (nonfiction books and Canadian historical magazine) that deals with their topic, "Confederation" and their Print and Website Evaluation Sheets.  Please make sure that they get the required resources.

If you have any questions or comments,  you make contact by phone or via email.

Library Research Project

Dear Parents,

Assalamu Alaikum,


Your child is in the process of a research project.  We have tackled the first step in research (Task Definition).


This week, we are working on Information Seeking Strategies. For next Wednesday, they will need to find resources that will help them answer their questions. They will need the following: nonfiction books dealing with their topic, magazine articles found in a Canadian historical magazine, websites and databases. I have already given them a list of databases that are found at the Ottawa Public Library.  They need to circle the databases that they feel will help them in their quest to find answers to their questions.


They need to have all of their resources for next Wednesday, inshaAllah because they will evaluate and select the ones that they feel are relevant to what they are looking for.


Jazakum Allahu Khairan for your help in this matter.
