Depending on Activities Used
Christmas is a time when a person’s thoughts turn to family gatherings, decorated trees, turkey dinners, brightly wrapped gifts and holiday traditions.
Like today, children of long ago grew more excited as the holiday season drew near – wondering what the hung stocking would hold, what new toy may be under the tree, what shape the newly cut tree would take, and what goodies their family would bake.
Through this virtual program, we provide a safe opportunity for students to learn about 1910 settler life and, in particular, about family traditions during the Christmas season in rural Saskatchewan. Students will compare and contrast how celebrating the holidays has changed and what has remained the same over the last 150 years.
The online program features a pre-recorded video in which Museum staff lead students through a holiday story that includes photos, artifacts and replicas as we follow a Grandmother and Grandfather preparing for Christmas. Other resources that can be used pre and post video include a selection of worksheets, crafts and activities appropriate for students K – 3.
