January to March 2014 at the History Centre

Posted on February 6, 2014

We are open for tours! For groups of 10 or more, please call us at 780-998-1783 to book your tour slot.

The History Centre started 2014 off with historical fun (and why not)! January 7th was the launch of our Grade 4 Connections to the Peoples program at the Fort Saskatchewan Museum & Historic Site. The Connections to the Peoples program is designed to elucidate general and specific curricular outcomes outlined in the Alberta Social Studies Grade 4 Program of Studies. The program focuses on the impact that early western exploration, the Fur Trade, and the decline of the bison had on the settlement of Western Canada. The Connections to the Peoples Grade 4 program is the perfect introduction to our Connections to the Law and Connections to the Land Grade 5 programs.

"The tour of the Precinct was really interesting and very engaging for the children. There were so many hands on activities for them to participate in that they were always engaged. I love that they are allowed to touch and explore many of the items around the precinct. That makes such a difference to keep them engaged, on task and motivated. The learning connections between what we talked about in school and what we saw were evident in the conversations between the kids and the interpreters."
