Program Description & Details

Historic Stewart Farm is offering live, virtual school programs. Without leaving your classroom,  an experienced costumed guide will lead your class on a virtual Matterport tour around the Farmhouse, recently updated Pole Barn, and historic outbuildings while providing curriculum current interpretation. Explore the history of local community, immigration, family roles, and how newcomers shaped the environment around them. These programs work for both in-class, and blended groups - if some students or your whole class log-in from home.

Three programs are being offered for varying grade ranges:

Stories Shoots and Sprouts - Kindergarten - Grade 1

Dig, plant, discover! Learn about growing heritage vegetables and fruit through historical indoor and outdoor seasonal activities. Students get active as they explore the site, including the root cellar, garden, orchard, pole barn and farmhouse kitchen. A package will be provided for students to plant a Historic Stewart Farm heirloom seed in their classroom. 

Farm Kids - Grade 1 - Grade 2

Students travel back in time to the 1890s to live just like Surrey’s settler children did. They’ll learn how students in the past helped with family life, important chores around the site, and balanced all of this to get to school on time. Butter making supplies will be provided for classes.

Immigrant Perspectives - Grade 5 - Grade 6

Immigrants in turn-of-the-century Canada certainly faced some challenges. Students experience the cultural traditions of Scottish and Chinese settlers on the farm, and learn how culture, economy and technology influenced rural life in Surrey and across the country. A primary resouce package is provided about local history, immigration, and those who settled at the Historic Stewart Farm.

These 90-minute programs costs $94.80 and will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis between February and June 2021. 

To reserve your program spot please contact the Historic Stewart Farm at 604-591-4627 or email StewartFarm@surrey.ca. Please leave a message with the preferred date, program, number of students, and grade level.

Please Note: We will be using the Microsoft Teams platform to deliver this program. To ensure a smooth program we require a technical ‘check-in’ prior to your scheduled program - we will discuss this with you upon booking. A projector, screen, and a laptop with speakers and microphone are required.

Program Description & Details

This 30-minute live digital program is adapted from MOA’s onsite Archaeology of the Lower Fraser River program, which was designed in collaboration with archaeologists from the Laboratory of Archaeology at UBC. During the program students will discover the rich 9,000 year history of the First Nations communities along the Lower Fraser River.  With the help of volunteer facilitators during the live digital component, students will learn about the life ways, tools and technology used by First Nations people. This is done by observing and studying ancient cultural belongings using 3D and live images.  The live digital component is part of an overall unit plan, with prerequisite lessons that show the techniques used by archaeologists to find and identify the belongings.

Once you book this school program, you will receive the complete unit plan by email, along with confirmation of date and time of the live digital component.

THEATRE ARTS FOR GRADES 1–7

Since 1988, the Stage Coach program has provided free theatre arts workshops to Metro Vancouver elementary schools.

Arts Umbrella teaching artists bring creativity-inspiring activities into local elementary schools over the course of three days (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) and deliver two workshops per day to participating classes. Workshops run for a maximum of 75 minutes and are offered at 9:00am and 10:45am each day. This program can take up to 6 classes at each elementary school; each class explores a curriculum-relevant topic through Theatre Arts – experiencing the arts through theatre games, performing, and more. School children have the chance to embrace diversity, explore artistic expression, and nurture community spirit – all while having fun!

A generation of children have experienced these incredible workshops – directly benefiting from free, high-quality arts programming in their schools.
