Manitoba 150: Think Historically
Provocation 1 -- Continuity & Change

When historians “do history” they often try to assess how things have changed over time and how they have remained the same. Have things changed quickly or substantially? Are the changes widespread throughout society? Or have some things just remained constant? These questions help us understand the human experience a bit better.

As part of Manitoba’s 150 years, Winnipeg has been a major part of its development. We have included five photos from the City of Winnipeg’s archives​. Some are related to people, some to space, and some to nature.

First, can you find present day photos of each of these photos we have posted? We have labelled them to help you out. Next, assess what has changed and what has remained the same?

Lastly, have the changes or the constants been important to Manitoba’s history? And to whose benefit or whose cost?

Please post your photos, podcasts, and texts! Can you find your own pair of then-and-now photos?

Teacher please send responses to manitoba150@7oaks.org​ by January 24th.


Version française
Manitoba 150 : Penser comme un historien
Texte provocateur no. 1 - la continuité et le changement

Quand les historiens Ă©tudient et interprĂštent le passĂ©, ils essayent d’évaluer qu’est-ce qui est diffĂ©rent et qu’est-ce qui demeure constant. Y a-t-il eu un changement rapide et/ou dramatique? Les changements ont-ils rĂ©pandu partout dans la sociĂ©tĂ©? Les choses ont-ils demeurĂ© constant? Ces questions nous aident Ă  mieux comprendre l’expĂ©rience humaine.

Votre tĂąche:

La ville de Winnipeg a jouĂ© un rĂŽle important dans le dĂ©veloppement du Manitoba durant ses premiers 150 ans. On vous demande d’évaluer cinq photos des archives de la ville de Winnipeg. Elles reprĂ©sentent des citoyens, l’espace urbain et la nature.

  1. Essayez de trouver une photo Ă©quivalente d’aujourd’hui. Les photos sont Ă©tiquetĂ©es pour vous aider. Ensuite, Ă©valuez ce qui a changĂ© et ce qui a demeurĂ© constant.
  2. Évaluez l’importance historique des changements et/ou de ce qui a restĂ© constant pour la sociĂ©tĂ© manitobaine. Qui a bĂ©nĂ©ficiĂ© et qui est dĂ©savantagĂ©?

Vous pouvez afficher vos réponses en forme de texte (il faut inclure les photos), une baladodiffusion (podcast) ou un autre format. Pouvez-vous trouver votre propre paire des photos?
