Vimy 100 History Lens Tool Kit

The Vimy 100 History Lens Tool Kit is designed to help educators and students deepen their knowledge and think critically about the Battle of Vimy Ridge on the anniversary of its centennial.

Students and teachers are asked to reflect on the importance of Vimy Ridge to Canada’s historical narrative, and what it means to Canada today. This learning tool includes activities to prepare students for their trip to Vimy, to engage students while in France, and to reflect on their visit to Vimy after returning.

Developed in line with the pedagogical concepts created by Dr. Peter Seixas and the Historical Thinking Project, this tool kit complements Canadian middle-school and high-school curricula. This tool kit has been created by Historica Canada, the country’s largest organization dedicated to enhancing awareness of Canada’s history.
