Canada's Participation in the Korean War: Inquiry, Historical Thinking, and Action

Learn about our shared histories and help your students build bridges across Canada and the world through these innovative Korean War inquiries developed by teachers for Canadian classrooms. The inquiries include all of the primary and secondary sources that students need to engage in the compelling questions through a series of formative tasks and include extension ideas to help students take informed action in their own school or community. 

You’ll learn about three inquiries for high school students: 

  •  Was the Korean War significant for French Canadians? 
  • Is peace possible in Korea? 
  • Was Canada’s participation in the Korean War successful?

And two inquiries for elementary and middle school students:

  • How can I best remember the Korean War?
  • What do different stories tell us about the Korean War?
