The Settlers: A New Life in Canada (Kit)

This multi-media educational resource kit contains photographs, pictures, artefacts, a video and books, in addition to background information, covering the topics of early settler life, homes, farms, transportation, clothing, food, communication and village life.

The kit contains word search puzzles and other activities to capture your students' interest, as well as "how-to" sheets for such hands-on lessons as candle dipping and butter-making.

Note: It is the responsibility of the borrower to pick up the kit at, and return it to, the Museum.  An option, however, is to book the kit to coincide with the date of a museum visit so that you may take the kit with you.

Cost: $20 per week or $15 per week if booked for pre- or post-visit use in conjunction with a museum program
School Grade Levels: 2, 3, 4
