The house tour will focus on the roles of family, specifically children, in the 1800s. Different themes will be emphasized to tie in with the curriculum outcomes of each grade level.
Students will explore the natural world in our own backyard. Activities will vary depending on grade level:
Primary, Grade 1 & 2 students will go on a nature Scavenger Hunt where they will search for nature’s hidden treasures!
Grade 3 students will explore the different types of soils in this hands-on activity, and determine why the Annapolis Valley soil is perfect for growing apples.
Grade 4, 5, and 6 students will explore the exciting dynamics of prey-predator relationships. They will learn about various adaptations that have enabled mammals to survive in their habitats, and they will play a challenging “stalking” game to simulate prey-predator interactions.
Students will make a bookmark using pressed flowers taken from our traditional English garden.
If time remains, the class will come together to play various Victorian Games. Games include: stilt walking, hoop and stick, skipping, Jacob’s ladder and more!
