**This is an interactive exploration of the history of Canada since the first point of contact with Indigenous Peoples to the present. This powerful teaching tool creates a baseline for a common understanding of the history that many of us were never taught from which to learn and explore the topics that will be covered the next day. This exercise is appropriate for children grade 3 and up. Many students across BC have gone through this in school as a Kairos Blanket Exercise.
