Journal of the Ontario History and Social Science Teachers' Association Resources Round-Up Before E-commerce: A history of Canadian mail-order Catalogues - Canadian Museum of History A wealth of primary sources, learning activities and games built around a vast collection of catalogues from 1880-1975. Exhibits explore not only the contents of the catalogues but they also explore the persuasive techniques used, the history of the companies and the workers, and the function of the catalogue in society. Jim Pedrech's Games Jim is a teacher at Holy Cross Catholic S.S. in London, Ontario. He has a bit of an obsession with games and he and his students have developed a number of games that the rest of us can use in our own classrooms. From the Land of the Pharaohs to a Victorian mystery, to ordering events in the Ancient World, you can choose your own adventure.
