Description

During this program, students learn about settler life and Christmas traditions in the early part of the 20th century.

Students take part in 3 activities:

  1. Imaginary shopping trip in Boomtown, learning about the types of gifts given during the holiday season and how much they cost.
  2. Make a holiday card using materials found in a 1910 home.
  3. Tour the Eaton’s Once Upon a Christmas display identifying how it is old fashioned and different than what you would see today

The program is open to GRADE 3 STUDENTS ONLY. Because limited space and resources cannot allow us to accommodate all interested Grade 3 students, we definitely cannot allow grades two or four students to participate.
