North Vancouver Museum Archives- NOVAMA

Our Trips

It is said that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ but how do we actually learn from photographs?

Using images from the Archives of North Vancouver's collection, students will explore Squamish themes and stories. The photographs feature local landscapes and individuals. Students will learn to analyze each image and to record relevant observations while learning aspects of Squamish culture. Topics include family life, education and art. The Kit includes lesson plans which encourage team work, group discussion and critical thinking.



With their teacher, students will explore the concept of community by analyzing photographs that illustrate how North Vancouver has changed over time. Activity guide, photographs, and Teacher's Package provided at
