I have planned another field trip! This one is for the Changing Times program at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. Here are the details:
Who: Students in grades 3-8
What: RSM Changing Times Program: Students examine the technologies and the natural resources used for survival by Saskatchewan First Nations before contact with Europeans. Students will discuss changes to hunting and gathering practices based on environmental changes through time and will have the chance to look at authentic stone tools and weapons and discuss their manufacture. Please note that a full visit to the First Nations Gallery is not included in the program. (You can tour the museum as a family before or after the program.) Staff will focus on the tool/weapon manufacturing exhibit.
Where: Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Regina (corner of Albert St. and College Ave.)
When: Tuesday, November 7, 1:15-2:15
Cost: Free! (Though the museum does appreciate a small donation.)
Note: The museum is in the process of installing a new elevator, so there is currently no working elevator at the museum.
Please LMK if you are interested in being a part of this activity by answering the following:
1) How many kids you are signing up for the workshop.
2) If you will be tagging along as a "chaperone", and
3) If there are any younger or older siblings that will also be tagging along.
(We will be split into two groups, so I need at least one other "chaperone", but, apparently, space is limited so I don't necessarily need ALL the kids' parents to come along - you might be able to enjoy a coffee in the lobby and visit with a friend. No food or beverages are allowed in the exhibits.)
There are a MAXIMUM of 30 kids allowed in the in the program.
