DREF Historical & Critical Thinking Activities

I worked with the “Direction des ressources éducatives françaises” (DREF) to create four educational guides for elementary teachers, focusing on social studies and critical thinking. In collaboration with “Centre du patrimoine”, I selected archive photographs of the French communities of Manitoba that showcase various themes, such as daily life, winter living, business and trades from the 1850s to the 1950s. I also designed worksheets for teachers to use in the classroom, which help students grade 4 to 6 develop an understanding of the past and compare it to the present, fostering historical and critical thinking skills.
