Discover the everyday lives and challenges of different communities that lived and worked in 19th century Ontario. Topics covered include food, clothing, education, recreation and work, and the roles of children.
Build on knowledge gained in the Virtual Field Trip by adding one of the following optional workshops:
- What is an Artifact?: Students are sent on a mission to find an “artifact” that represents an important event or or experience in their life or the life of their family. At the next session, an educator will join the class live from the Village to discuss what different types of artifacts teach us about communities in the past.
- All About Food: Students receive three different 19th century recipes that they can try at home. At the next session, an educator joins the class live to introduce kitchen tools from the past and examine 19th century recipe books.
