History at Warplane

History at Warplane Heritage

Grade 10 history students visited the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. We learned about the various roles of men and women in The Second World War.

The class learned how to send and receive messages in Morse Code and rivet together parts of planes. They also used a grid to determine the direction of enemy planes in order to decide the location they should send our fighter planes in defense. The students learned what it meant to ration and were shocked at how little food people had to work with.

The class also heard the incredible story of Andrew Mynarski. And – of course! – got to see a lot of cool planes.
