Exploring Recipes from the WDM Collection
Today, if you want to learn how to cook something new, you’ll probably turn to a recipe either online or in a cookbook. Food – cooking, sharing and eating it – can foster a sense of community and belonging. This video series is a celebration of cooking and how it connects us.

We have developed some activities for children to do at home – colouring sheets, connect the dots, and crafts!

Virtual Education Program – Think Like a Historian
TEACHERS AND HOMESCHOOLERS
Think Like a Historian
High School Grades 9 – 12
This virtual program explores and investigates primary and secondary sources while also making comparisons between Saskatchewan people who lived through the Spanish Flu pandemic to those living today during the COVID-19 pandemic. Students build their analytical thinking skills by making inferences from historical text and photographs asking insightful questions about when, why, and by whom these historical sources were created. With six different modules, this program allows students to take a deep dive into the world of history, museums, sources, and critical thinking.
