Exam Practice

In this activity, students will complete exam-like questions in preparation for the Québec Ministère de l’Éducation History IV provincial exam. To complete this activity, it is recommended that students have a basic knowledge of WWII and the Normandy Landings. Our virtual exhibition When Daylight Comes: Canadians at D-Day, may be of interest if students don’t have prior knowledge.

Goals of the Activity

These activities were created for the Je Me Souviens education program as educational tools to complement the QEP secondary IV history and secondary V contemporary world courses.

In addition, the activities can be used as language tools in the following QEP courses: Francais langue maternelle secondaire V, IV, III, English Language Arts and FSL or ESL secondary V, IV, III. 

The goal of these activities is to allow secondary cycle two students to have a greater understanding of World War II and Canada’s role in the Normandy landings. Students will also learn to appreciate the contributions of Canadian Armed Forces personnel from Quebec.
