Do Artifacts Tell Stories? (Great War Program)

Students can further engage with the content in the online exhibit "Deo et Patriae - For God and Country: The University of Saskatchewan and the Great War" with a 1-hour curriculum-based educational module. Students can be divided into five groups, with which they will rotate through five stations, each with a differnet set of images of artifacts. At these stations, students will start developing historical thinking skills, such as evidence and interpretation. Each group will do a critical analysis on the artifacts. They will be looking at trench artifacts, trench tools, uniforms, the Vimy Monument, and medals that were given out after the First World War. This information is then complied in an artifact analysis sheet, where students will be answering a series of questions based on their interpretations.  

All program materials can be downloaded below.

Why History Matters (Great War Program)

Students in Grades 6-12 can further engage with the content in the online exhibit "Deo et Patriae - For God and Country: The University of Saskatchewan and the Great War" with a 1-hour curriculum-based educational module. Divided into five groups, students will research themes from the exhibit using articles, stories, poems, propaganda, and visuals. They will critically analyze topics including how attitudes changed during the course of the war, significant scientific and munitions developments, the role of women in society, the treatment of Indigenous people and immigrants, and our remembrance of the war. Students will use their findings to create articles, similar to those published in the campus newspaper The Sheaf during the war. The articles will be compiled into a newspaper that the students can take back to the classroom.
