Peel's Prairie Provinces

Peel's Prairie Provinces provides fertile ground for educators and learners of all types to discover the rich history of the Canadian prairies. From elementary school children to post secondary educators, the resources found within Peel can be used for a wide variety of educational purposes.  I was hired (with another teacher) by the University of Alberta Libraries to create online lessons showcasing the Peel collection.
