Fall 2011 Home Learner Programs

homschool-family

The Port Moody Station Museum is once again offering programs to families who participate in home learning. These programs give individual families the opportunity to attend educational programs normally reserved for groups.

This year we are offering two of our most popular programs in fall.

Look for additional programs in Spring 2012 including a featured program “Chinese Legacies & the CPR”. This program will be offered in conjunction with the travelling exhibit “Chinese Legacies” which will be on at the Museum May to August 2012.  The program Chinese Legacies & the CPR  is recommended for ages 10-14 and will be offered Thurs., May 24th – 10-11:30am.

We also offer other educational programs which may be available if enough families are interested. Please call for more information.

Programs for home learning families are delivered with parent participation in mind. Young children are welcome to come but may not be suitable to participate in all aspects of the program. The cost for 90 min. programs is $6 for 1 adult & 1 child, $2 for each additional child. We hope you can join us!

A Report On a Field Trip to the Museum

Here is a blog item I found on the net about a field trip to our museum by a teacher. I believe it to be written by a Vancouver Elementary School teacher, but do not know for sure:

Field trip to the Port Moody Station Museum

The Port Moody Station Museum is a very important and interesting historical site. It is a direct link to B. C.’s past. Without the railway, who knows what Canada would look like today.

To learn a little about the importance of the railway, take a few minutes to view the video titled ‘Forging the National Dream’. After viewing the video, go to the comment section and write one fact that you learned from watching the video.
