How many pictures do you take in a week? In a year? How do you decide which ones to share? Historians sift through all the artifacts of the past and decide which ones to share or display in museums, books and exhibits like this one. Curators are the kind of historians who decide what goes in a museum exhibit. You and your peers are going to think like curators today as you decide what images you would choose to put in the exhibit. You’ll design your own mini-exhibit that tells the story of Canada from Vimy to Juno.
