Dutch Liberation Tulips

By integrating historical events such as World War II with skills such as farming and survival off the land, students remember and learn from the past in order that they can work towards a positive future.

Students explore, observe and examine tulip bulbs. They are tasked with identifying various locations in their school yard that are suitable to plant their bulbs based on various criteria, including different growing conditions. By monitoring and collecting data from these locations during the plant’s growth cycle, they enhance their understanding of the tulip cycle.

Activities include:

  • Planting tulip bulbs
  • History of the Netherlands 1944
  • Force growing bulbs
  • Growing spring bulbs
  • Spring in the Netherlands 1945
  • And more

This program was created to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Canadian Forces’ role in the Liberation of Europe at the end of World War II.
