Program Description & Details

Our award-winning curriculum engages and stimulates students to connect the history of a young German immigrant family in Vancouver (between1880s-1920s) to their own and to reflect on immigration and social and cultural differences. The visit is split into 3 parts: architectural drawing (house and neighborhood), a tour of the house (during which children learn about the history of a family and of the city of Vancouver), and the discovery of unusual historical artifacts. This curriculum is particularly geared towards Grade 5 students, but can be easily adapted or used for other grades.
