Teacher Led Program led by a teacher, with guidance from Museum staff.
During this program, students learn about settler life and Christmas traditions in the early part of the 20th century.
The program includes:
- Before your visit, you will be provided with a video link to watch that is all about preparing for Christmas in Saskatchewan in 1910.
- At the Museum, a teacher-led imaginary shopping trip on Boomtown Street, learning about the types of gifts given during the holiday season and how much they cost, as well as a teacher-led tour of the Eaton’s Once Upon a Christmas display identifying how it is old fashioned and different than what you would see today. Worksheets for these activities will be provided.
- After your Museum visit, you can discuss the outcomes of your worksheets. You will also be provided with instruction sheets and templates for three different Christmas-themed crafts you can do with your class.
“We really enjoyed Christmas shopping in Boomtown. Everything was well organized and the students had an exciting and authentic experience.” – Teacher, 2021
Educator In-Service: An educator in-service session will be offered by request via Zoom. It will cover all aspects of the before visit activity, what to expect for your Museum visit and the after-visit crafts. You will also have an opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
