This project was funded in part by the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation.
Engaging in culture and art through primary sources.
Art and poetry are highlighted in this package allowing students to recognize the ever changing environment and how artists include this concept of transformation in their work.
This educator's package presents insightful information about Glenbow's collection of Historical, Modern and Contemporary Art. The information encourages students to examine artwork from the Glenbow Museum's collection and look carefully and critically in order to create dialogue and thoughtful discussions about the art, its purpose and how its role has evolved throughout the years.
For each package our team of curators and educators have selected additional artworks and artifacts from our online collection database that can be used in conjunction with the teacher's guide and lesson plan.
You can access all of the objects that were selected for this package by clicking here.

- Lesson plans including discussions for looking at primary sources, curriculum connections and lesson plans for a variety of ages and abilities.
- Detailed listing of vocabulary and concepts.
