Museum Led Program led by Museum staff or volunteers.
Museum Days brings the Museum and Saskatchewan history alive, inside and out, with demonstrations, interpretations, displays and activities. Students accompanied by a chaperone/teacher may try their hand at different “old-time” activities. Teachers/Chaperones will be provided with a map listing of all activities taking place.
Interpreters will inhabit Boomtown; demonstrations, inside and outside (weather permitting), will add activity and interest. Make a rope, turn wheat into flour, write with a nib pen and ink, wash clothes on a scrub board and squeeze them through a hand-turned wringer, pump water, and more. Watch the blacksmiths shape a red-hot iron rod into a utensil or listen to the telegraphers send a message using the dots and dashes of Morse Code. Have you ever tried milking a cow? Here is your chance! All activities are intended to give children an idea of what it was like to live over 100 years ago.
We encourage students to dress as children would have in 1910 Saskatchewan.
NOTE: Activities may vary from year to year, which means that some curriculum connections may change.
