The McCord Museum is one of Canada’s leaders in the development of online collections. With more than 135,000 images of artifacts, paintings, minatures, clothing, and photographs, their extensive online database is a great starting point for early Canadian history.
Thematic Tours studying editorial cartoons, photography of Canada, urban life, and magic lantern shows also add colour and life to your lessons. And of course the museum’s education section links material thematically for quick use in the classroom. The games test your knowledge of Canadian history with four types of games: role-playing games, association games, observation games and quizzes. Don’t miss “My McCord” which allows you to select and organize your favorite images from the collection, comment on them, describe them, tag your images and even compare them to your own photographs.
