In Grade 8 history, students will expand their knowledge on earlier Canadian history between 1850 and 1914. They will explore experiences and challenges facing Canadians around the beginning of the twentieth century. Students will explore the path that led the country to Confederation and the effect it had on Canadians, including First Nations, and new immigrants. Students will learn of the rights and freedoms we have in Canada today and how they came to be. Students will develop and learn about the issues of Canadians for that time from the mid-nineteenth century to the eve of World War I.
There are two strands for Grade 8 History:
Canada: 1900-1914: A Changing Society.
