Social Studies



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"

Exploring the Park before or after a school program is NOT permitted. The Village is closed at this time. 

Each program is designed for a maximum of 30 students due to space restrictions within the buildings. If you have additional students please call the education team to discuss if this accommodation can be made. The program fee includes 30 students and the adult supervisors within the required ratio. Teachers are included in this ratio. A fee will be charged for any additional students or adults. There is no charge for one-on-one aids. If paying for any additional adults and/or students, no refund will be granted if numbers change the day of the program. The credit card used for payment will be kept on file until the completion of the program.  

Please contact us for subsidized rates if needed for your school.
