Museum Led Program led by Museum staff or volunteers.
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:
- Imaginary shopping trip in Boomtown, learning about the types of gifts given during the holiday season and how much they cost.
- Make a holiday card using materials found in a 1910 home.
- 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.
