This resource provides links to information on Canada's involvement in wars and peacekeeping in the 20th century.
This guide is designed to aid educators with activities intended to teach young children in Kindergarten to Grade 3 about Canada's participation in wars of the 20th century.
The collage of photos presented on this poster represents the three branches of the armed forces and the three major conflicts Canada has participated in during the Twentieth Century. Our modern day Peace Keepers are also represented.
The role of Canadian peacekeepers and peacekeeping is discussed in this teachers' guide. Topics include history, purpose; functions and tasks, and past and present missions. Links to a class activity titled Postcards for Peace are included.
The United Nations Medals are given for service as a peacekeeper in countries around the world. This second list gives a further idea of some of the places where UN forces have been active. Photos are provided along side the information.
