Heritage Fair Project & Themes
Museum Assists Teachers and Students
The year 2012 marks the 200th anniversary of the first permanent settlement in Kamloops and the start of a shared history between the Secwepemc First Nations and Europeans.
The Kamloops Museum & Archives wants to support teachers and their students for this year's annual Heritage Fair projects by encouraging students to focus on our local history.
Melissa Baker, the Museum's Educator explains, "Beginning an assignment is always difficult and we want to help students with their projects. We've come up with several themes to help them get started and provide some direction."
Students will have access to a rich repository of historic articles, old newspapers, books, photographs and more - all of it authentic and valuable research for their projects.
The Kamloops Museum and Archives will host a number of events to commemorate this anniversary including an Adult Lecture Series, and a book project entitled 'A Children's History of Kamloops'.
Student projects that participate will also be recognized and granted a distinctive commemorative ribbon. Some of the projects will also be chosen to be included in the book and published as part of our bicentennial commemorative history.
It all begins with a phone call to book your class for a visit to the Kamloops Museum & Archives.
