5 Days of Canadian Social Studies – High School History

Welcome to the second day of 5 Days of Canadian Social Studies! Today I’m sharing Canadian resources for teaching high school history in your homeschool.

High School History

high school history
Canada: A People’s History is a 30 hour documentary series. The website includes episode summaries, a teacher’s guide, and a discussion forum to help you create an entire homeschool class. We borrowed the DVDs from our local library, but they are also available for purchase on the website.

Canadian History for Dummies is part of the fun but informative “for Dummies” series of books. This book can be a particularly good match for high schoolers (and parents) who think Canadian history is boring.

The Canada Year Book Historical Collection, part of the Statistics Canada website, contains information on families, economics, Canada at war, and more with tables, charts, maps, photos, and multimedia resources. A great reference for any Canadian studies or research papers.

Check out day one of 5 Days of Canadian Social Studies for elementary history resources for your homeschool.
