Feedback form is now closed.

Want to bring history to life in your classroom? Want your students to experience history? This session will walk you through a series of simulations that you can run to explore who the Loyalist were and their journey to Canada. Your students will be actively engaged in their learning and WANT to know more! They will have opportunities to put themselves into history and become the characters on their journey and actively experience the trials and tribulations alongside them! Lots of humanities cross curricular opportunities! You will walk away with the complete simulation packages, tasks and assessment for multiple simulations that connect together to teach various stages of the Loyalist’s journey and cross curricular final project to assess a wide variety of outcomes.
