Description

Using an interactive game book, students will assume one of several possible identities of a newly arrived settler in 1910 Alberta. As they tour the Park they collect points that correspond to their health, wealth and survival; discovering how luck, opportunity, hard work and ethnicity combined to create the immigrant's experience. Students will gain an understanding of the changing perspectives that have occurred in western Canada's political, social and economic landscape. Pre-visit activities are required. Drop-off and pick up from Parking Lot "D"
