We will start with a quick overview of the museum and our different Schools Programs. Then the teachers will have a chance to become the students and experience our most popular program: Cannery Stories.
What was life like for the people who lived and worked in one of BC’s cannery towns? After a snapshot tour of our canning line exhibit, the cannery’s general store serves as the backdrop for a detective game. Students will work in teams to discover the identity of six cannery workers. Conversations with store clerks, and access to documents and artifact replicas provide the clues that will reveal the personal story of these workers and highlight the treatment of minority people in BC’s fishing industry.
You will need to pack a lunch and a waterbottle.
