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

Be an archaeologist for a day! Discover the rich, 9,000-year history of the First Nations people who lived along the lower Fraser River by learning about their lifeways, tools and technologies. These 50-minute virtual programs were designed in collaboration with archaeologists from the Laboratory of Archaeology at UBC.

You can select between two digital program options:

  • Archaeology of the Lower Fraser River: Hunting + Fishing
  • Archaeology of the Lower Fraser River: Woodworking + Home Life

During the program students will discover the rich 9,000-year history of First Nation communities along the Lower Fraser River. With the help of volunteer facilitators during the live digital component, students will learn about the lifeways, tools and technology used by First Nations people in the past.  Students will be encouraged to think about how cultural belongings were made and used long ago. By understanding the deep knowledge First Nations required to create tools and belongings, students will enhance their respect for First Nations Cultures today.

The live digital session 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.

Written to support distance learning but also useful for physically distanced teaching, a Tech-Up Learning Kit contains resources for both synchronous and/or asynchronous lessons. The teacher guide walks you through leading student activities over a series of sessions of approximately 30-45 minutes. Student activities are handouts for students to work through on their own as assigned, according to your own timeline and discretion.

In these activities, learners in Grades 4-6 will explore how parts of speech can be used to strengthen their understanding of variables.

Students will work towards writing their own Mad Lib Stories before using Scratch to code a Mad Lib story generator.

There is also an optional extension activity if you would like to build further on the coding concepts explored in these lessons.

This kit contains resources for both synchronous and asynchronous lessons.

Tech-Up Learning Specialists are available to support you with these kits.

This virtual workshop will introduce students to coding with random generators and arrays within micro:bit classroom.

NO PHYSICAL MICRO:BIT REQUIRED.

In this workshop we will work to familiarize your students with coding within the micro:bit classroom, opening up the opportunity for you to continue using micro:bit lessons with your class.

Students will learn how to create, access, and changes lists as well as explore the uses of inputs and random numbers. They will work towards creating a random generator to help them solve the everyday problem of “I’m bored, what should I do?”

This workshop will cover basicsvariablesarrays, and input and leaves room for possible further extension. This activity can be done entirely using the online simulator if no physical micro:bit is available.

THIS WORKSHOP, OFFERED VIRTUALLY, WILL INTRODUCE STUDENTS TO THE BASICS OF CODING BY USING A VIRTUAL OZOBOT EMULATOR.  

This workshop introduces students to computational thinking and the technology computer programmers may use. Students work through a series of challenges on Shape Tracer, a simulated Ozobot environment. They will learn how to program the robot to change colour, use loops and move in the most efficient way. This workshop will cover basic coding practices, no coding experience is required. If students have a physical Ozobot they can flash their code to their robot to see it play out in real life.

THIS WORKSHOP, OFFERED VIRTUALLY, WILL INTRODUCE STUDENTS TO THE BASICS OF SCRATCH AS THEY WORK TO CREATE AN INTERACTIVE GREETING CARD.

In this workshop we will start with a discussion around what coding is and why it’s an important skill to learn. We will then do a brief introduction to the Scratch website and review all of the features before we begin coding. Following an I do – We do – You do model, we will work towards building an interactive greeting card that will use motion, looks, sound, backgrounds, and events. Students will leave the workshop with a solid foundation of Scratch coding skills so that they can continue to experiment with their own ideas!
