JOURNEYS Education Kits

JOURNEYS Education Kits offer object-based and multimedia learning tools for classroom use to learn about Japanese Canadian internment. The kit includes historical artefact replicas, primary and secondary source documents, and sample lesson plans suitable for students from grades 5 to 12.

3 WEEK LOAN: $40 (+tax) – shipping charges may apply**

Teachers may pick up the kit or have it shipped to your school (shipping charges will apply).

**Thanks to a generous sponsorship from the NNMCC Auxiliary, all JOURNEYS kit rentals to schools in Canada during the 2020-2021 school year will be free of charge. This includes round-trip shipping fees to schools outside the Lower Mainland.

COVID-19 Precautions

JOURNEYS Education Kits are available for loan during the pandemic. Extra quarantine time is scheduled between loans to prevent objects in the kit from transmitting the COVID-19 virus between different borrowing groups.

NNMCC recommends that students wear nitrile gloves if touching items in the kit (gloves not provided). Teachers should ensure that they are following their school's safety guidelines when using the kit in the classroom.

2019 redevelopment of the Journeys Education Kits was curated by Nathalie Picard in conjunction with her Masters in Public History at Carleton University, and made possible by support from the Province of British Columbia, Metro Vancouver, British Columbia Arts Council, NNMCC Auxiliary Committee, the Frank H. Underhill Endowment, and the Landscapes of Injustice Project.
