The Re:Location Giant Floor Map highlights stories from Canada’s past about the movement and relocation of peoples which have shaped the nation we live in today.
Using the accompanying 10 curriculum-linked learning activities, students will dive into what relocation means and how this theme is connected to the history of national parks, war, economic growth, industrial development and more. Students will examine historical images, learn about some of the many communities relocated in Canada, and be involved in meaningful discussions about the nature of how communities and families were relocated in the past and how it has influenced Canada’s landscape.
The Giant Floor Maps are available on loan for 3-week periods throughout the school year and by special request during the summer.
