Yes, the Museum will bring the resource – a 1.5 hour workshop – to your classroom. The following programs are now available:
There are many birds and animals that make their home in the Kitimat Valley forest. The forest is an ecosystem. Forests are full of living and non-living things that depend on each other. Trees, ferns, and shrubs grow in the forest. Insects, birds, deer and bears are some of the forest animals that need these plants. Water, stones, and soil are nonliving things that animals need too. These are concepts that will be explored in this teaching program.
What was it like living and going to school in the Kitimat Valley over 100 years ago? Household/farming/pioneer activities and their associated objects and outcomes will be explored as students learn what chores they would have been expected to do – including how these jobs differ from, or are similar to modern day life. This program lets the students experience everyday pioneer life from a child’s perspective.
Ancient Life and Land in the Northwest Teaching Program. Did you know that the entire Kitimat Valley right up to Terrace was covered in a glacier25,000 years ago? Actually the entire Terrace/Kitimat area was once under a sea millions of years ago, then ice, and when the ice melted, under sea again.
