What IS My Canadian Time Capsule?

You know those fun subscription boxes you can get in the mail each month? My Canadian Time Capsule is a digital subscription box that focuses on history.

Each month, you will get access to a new Time Capsule, a moment in Canadian history, filled with resources, activities, printables, and more.  The goal of each capsule is to immerse yourself into that single moment and take a look around. Its intention is to get you and your children excited, interested, and learning that Canadian history isn't boring after all.

Month one is all about the Klondike Gold Rush. Together you will experience the thrill that caused 100,000 people to set out on a dream of a lifetime adventure and that turned a quiet northern province into an American wild-west style town. It's a story of danger, determination, and dreaming.

EXAMPLES OF ACTIVITIES FOR MONTH ONE:

Shop for a Yukon Outfit
Shop for a Yukon Outfit
Klondike Post Cards
Send Postcards Home Along the Way
Klondike Gold Rush Diorama
Make a Diorama

When you've completed the activities that interest you each month, you can print out a timestamp and stick it into your TimeStamp Collection Booklet and write a little short note to remind you what was learned. Keep collecting stamps throughout your Time Capsule adventure.

FAQs

What age is this for?

This membership was designed around what I thought my own kids would enjoy - particularly my Grade 5+ kids. However, I hate putting age ranges on things because homeschooling is so adaptable that you can use it with all kids. I think this program is able to be used with most ages.

Will I have access forever?

As long as you are a member, you will have access to the modules that are released to you.  When your membership expires, is cancelled, or is put on pause - you will no longer have access.

Is this secular?

I always try to make my resources faith-neutral. I don't anticipate needing to talk about religion much in these unit studies, but if we had a topic that needed to talk about faith it would be from a historical perspective, not a personal faith one.

What about Indigenous Studies? 

My hope is that I will be able to find a partner within the Indigenous community who can help me create some modules of Indigenous perspectives - including residential schools and treaties. Since I'm not from a First Nations background personally, I wanted to make sure that I respect and present their views accurately instead of whitewashing it. In the meantime, the subjects that will be created will always try to have activities or research questions that encourage students to consider how events impacted the Indigenous community.

Are the units printable or all online?

Activities will be a combination of videos, printables, activities, online games and research, and more. Some will be online and some will be offline.

What topics will this cover? 

My Canadian Time Capsule is NOT a comprehensive chronological look at Canadian history. It will jump around and cover lots of different topics. Right now, we have put together a basic list of topics we feel are a good place to start, however I am not fully sure of of  the order they will be released. Some examples of topics:

  • Les Voyageurs
  • Women & the Vote
  • The Vikings
  • WWI
  • WWII
  • The Halifax Explosion
  • First Nations Studies
  • The Underground Railroad
  • The Canadian Pacific Railway
  • The Great Depression
  • War of 1812
  • Dinosaurs
  • Frank Slide
  • Settling of the West
  • The Acadians
  • New France
