Anne Frank and the Courage of Upstanders

Suggested Levels: Grades 7-10.

This project, centred around Anne Frank and her family during WWII, sets the stage to discuss and explore the idea of Upstanders from the contexts of History, Geography and Language Arts.

This project is also a great jumping-off point for discussions of current-day upstanders, allowing you to incorporate current events and further engage your learners.

Through a video, students are presented with a few examples of estuaries and the populations already living in these environmentally sensitive areas.

Les détectives du passé

Niveaux envisagés : 4e-7e année

Ce projet permettra d’initier les élèves à la compréhension des répercussions que les évènements historiques peuvent avoir au fil du temps.

Les élèves joueront le rôle d’historien et tenteront d’interpréter des documents relatant un évènement historique du milieu des années 1900. Vers la fin du projet, une vidéo sera présentée aux élèves. Elle leur permettra de valider leur analyse des documents concernant le déroulement des évènements.

Ce projet est l’occasion pour les élèves de déduire l’enchaînement logique de certains moments passés, d’explorer différents scénarios et d’appuyer leurs interprétations avec l’information qui leur est présentée sous diverses formes.
