WDM Saskatoon
Grade 4 Harvest Demonstration

Program Information

Approximately 3000 students attend the annual Grade Four Threshing Demonstration at the Saskatoon WDM. The event has been a WDM tradition since 1975. It recreates harvests of years gone by, with a focus on highlighting the progression of harvesting methods over time.

The September 2014 program marked the 40th year that the Saskatoon WDM has presented the Harvest Demonstration to Grade 4 students from around Saskatchewan. Nearly 100,000 Grade 4 students from Saskatchewan have attended the program since it began. WDM volunteers and staff have worked tirelessly every fall to ensure the Museum can continue to share this important part of Saskatchewan history with students.

Location: Saskatoon Western Development Museum
Dates: September 19-21, 2017

Program Cost: $4.00 / student


Explore Ag & Seed Survivor

While you are at our Harvesting Demonstration, plan time to explore a FREE agriculture exhibit from Agrium and Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan.

The exhibit includes hands-on lessons on growing healthy plants and healthy food, interactive computer games, sunflower seed planting station, a scavenger hunt in the museum and much more!

NOTE: The full Explore Ag program is not available during the Grade 4 Harvesting Demonstration, but the exhibit is open and staff will be on hand to answer questions and help students with activities.
