Explore the past, present and future
(grades 7–8)

Paintings like Drummond’s View of Kingston’s City Hall (1912) can give us insight into what cities used to look like. They are important artifacts that allow us to see into the past and explore what life was like. The short video and accompanying lesson plan explore the past and imagine the future.

This video is accompanied by a lesson plan geared towards elementary school students grades 7–8.

AGNES Learns is a digital resource for children and families. Artworks from the Agnes collection inspire fun ways to explore, understand and get creative.
