Bring the Battle of Vimy Ridge to your class this year with the Vimy Foundation’s online educational resource Vimy 100 in the Classroom!
This free, fully accessible, bilingual resource has been designed for high school students across Canada and includes lesson plans, resources, and activities for use in a variety of classes.
Your students will be able to interpret Canada’s role in the First World War, as well as the significance of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and the Canadian National Vimy Memorial; setting these events within the contexts of the formation of Canada as a country, Canadian nationalism, and citizenship.
The Vimy 100 in the Classroom program encourages students to actively consider the war, and to discuss difficult questions, like the relationship between nationalism and war, in the form of debates, data collection, and mini research projects.
In advance of the launch of Vimy 100 in the Classroom, the Vimy Foundation is offering educators access to the program’s debate module “Was a Nation Born On a Battlefield?” Students will debate the question that arose just after the Canadian Corps won at Vimy in April 1917: was Canada formed on Vimy Ridge?
Mark your calendars for November 1 when the entire Vimy 100 in the Classroom resource kit will be released!
