Grade 6 is a time for independent exploration and discovery, which we at the Wetaskiwin Museum like to encourage. For this reason, we offer something a bit different from the tours that we offer other grades. Through this activity, students will engage in teamwork, research, and critical thinking.
Our staff has created a scavenger hunt booklet that encompasses all of our 2nd floor exhibits. Students will thoroughly examine:
- Wetaskiwin Early Businesses
- The General Store
- The Century Home
- Chinese and Swedish Immigration
- The War Years
Students may complete this worksheet independently or in teams to further develop their research, critical thinking skills, and knowledge of Wetaskiwin’s history and local culture.
