Discover a wealth of interesting, entertaining and informative stories in each issue, delivered to you six times per year.
History Bits is a new animated web series exploring a diverse range of topics, from overcoming racism in Africville, Nova Scotia, to the historic fight for women’s voting rights, to the struggle to survive the dustbowl era of the Dirty Thirties. Each action-packed episode highlights the courage, creativity, and perseverance of Canadians from the past.
History Bits was inspired by comics that appear in Kayak: Canada’s History Magazine for Kids, written by Kayak editor Nancy Payne and illustrated by Alex Diochon, and published by Canada’s History Society.
Supplemental educational materials for teachers and parents will be provided so that they can more deeply explore the stories and themes with young viewers.
