Educational Resources

Select from the education resources listed on the left. Each of these “Learning Objects” presents a collection of media for exploration, and related activity ideas for your students.

This collection of learning resources explores historical, cultural and social ideas about what might make a car Canadian. Students can examine this central question through five possible frames of reference — design, manufacturing, marketing, consumer popularity, and social impacts.
