A Community in the Past

Grade(s): 2

Location: Father Lacombe Chapel

Program Delivery:

Stepping into the Father Lacombe Chapel is like stepping back in time. Students visiting this historic site will need to ‘spot’ what is old and what is modern as the program begins. Learning how a building could be built without nails, tasting bannock, participating in an interactive story and making a simple sash are all a part of the experience as young students realize just how much fun history can be!

Teacher Feedback

I have done clay projects with you for as long as I can remember. Once again, everything was AMAZING! We have a new grade partner this year who had never been, and she absolutely loved it! The instructors are always excellent, They explain and guide the students in manageable chunks to make it easy for the kids to follow along. I love that you allow extra parents to come and assist. I especially like that the projects are always connected to the curriculum! Thanks again.

The Peru and Indigenous Peoples of Canada program perfectly connected Gr 3 Social Studies content with some Gr 4 Social Studies content. We had lots to talk about after.

The instructor was amazing. She engaged the students in the Métis culture. The activity was hands on and informative.
