History Game Canada

History Game Canada

Built on the popular "Civilization" strategy game platform, History Game Canada enhances the history learning experience of 12-18 year olds by putting them in control of early Canadian civilizations-from the French and English to the Huron and Ojibwe. Players are invited to imagine historical events from different perspectives or to fantasize alternative outcomes to consider not only the "what was" of history, but also to envision what might have been. History Game Canada fosters critical thinking, creative problem-solving, and what it means to make or remake national history.
