Donna Ward is well known for her Canadian Workbooks, Courage and Conquest is part of that line of workbooks. It focuses on the history of Canada from the viking through to the joining of Newfoundland and Nunavut to Canada.
As you can see the book end with time line pictures, helping you to clearly see all the events in Canadian history. Each timeline picture matches up with the image with each lesson.
Each lesson comes with a story, suggested readings, a point of additional study and then a workpage based on the day’s reading.
The points of additional study included such things as building a fort of popsicle sticks, learning more about scurvy, learning more about Joseph Brant, the Hudson’s Bay Company and Pemmican. Finding geography points, first nations and so much more.
I have to admit that I picked up this book to use with my lad a few years back and we’ve only occasionally used it, mostly just to read the stories in it. We’ve not done the workbook part and I don’t know that we will. Sometimes it’s just enough to read the stories you know?
