April 9-12, 2017 will mark 100 years since Canadian troops accomplished the impossible at Vimy Ridge and in so doing, established a national identity. The horrors of this war make it difficult to present this battle to younger students in an appropriate way. Author Sigmund Brouwer tours teaching resources suitable for elementary students, including the significant First Nations war efforts.
