Home & School: Living in the 1900’s (Grades 2–3)

Home and School: Living in the 1900s
Display Time: 
9:30am - 11:30am
No cost. Schools are responsible for transportation and adequate supervision.

Students are asked to imagine life before electricity and many other technologies we enjoy today. Through a series of hands-on activities – such as rug hooking, writing on slates, and washing clothes – students experience firsthand what life was like over 100 years ago. This program includes a visit to our two exhibitions: From this Place: Our Lives on Land and Sea and Here, We Made a Home.

9:30am - 11:30am Tuesday to Friday, October 3rd to June 1st

Maximum 30 students
