Cancellation of Fair

The Red River Heritage Committee has decided that at this time it is prudent to cancel our fair scheduled for May 6, 2020. We understand that this will be a disappointment for your students but these are unusual times.

The Young Citizens program, where students may create videos on a volunteer basis, will still be operating, so please encourage your students to participate!

Looking forward to a successful fair in 2021!

MANITOBA 150

Red River Heritage Fair 2020


Themes for Manitoba 150 Anniversary
May 6, 2020

We are asking teachers and students to take note of the suggested themes and create their projects around them, using Historical thinking concepts.  Topics of your choice are also welcome, reflecting the 150th theme using the Historic Thinking Concepts

For Manitoba 150, project topics are to reflect the historic aspect of Manitoba, not the modern and current 21st century world

The Historical Thinking Project works with six distinct concepts. To think historically, students need to be able to:     

  • Establish historical significance  
  • Use primary source evidence
  • Identify continuity and change
  • Analyze cause and consequence
  • Take historical perspectives, and
  • Understand the ethical dimension of historical interpretations

Please keep your student topics Canadian history based. Due to the anniversary themes, we may exclude 21st century topics from attending the heritage fair this year.  Please contact the RRHF committee if you are unsure of students’ topic selection.
