Exceptional Education Experiences at the Musee Heritage Museum

This Fall the museum programming department has been busy supporting teachers in St. Albert, Sturgeon County and Edmonton! We are delighted to be able to invite students back into the education space at the museum and our heritage sites. The enthusiasm provided by children returning in person for programs livens up the museum and warms the hearts of all of the staff!

November was a busy month for the museum with Metis Week being celebrated. Six hundred students learned about traditional Metis finger weaving from Celina Loyer, our Aboriginal Programmer. Celina met with students at the museum, visited individual classrooms in schools through our outreach option, and virtually taught an entire elementary school in a single afternoon! School-wide programming, virtual or in person programs, are an excellent way to introduce Metis finger weaving as we work together and learn more about the Aboriginal history of our region and country.

 

Another popular option is for us to come to you! Outreach programs are a great option for a programmer to bring a museum program to your class. I Belong and Bears are two programs that are perfect for kindergarten classes to have a field trip in a familiar environment.

 

 

And don’t forget about our education kits available for you to use in your classrooms to reinforce learning.  Contact the Education Coordinator at museum@artsandheritage.ca for more information.
