March break this year I wanted to do something different with the boys. I searched for something to do with them and hit upon Ska-nah-doht. I had never been to this Indian village. It is part of the Longwoods Conservation area and is located outside of London.
Our venture out was on a sunny day, our trip was easy, but our walk-around Ska-Nah-Doht was rather slip-n-slide. The ice of the winter had not yet dissipated which gave our Brazilian student an education in Canadian winter walking. 🙂
Out Buildings and Village
We heard from another family visiting that they had a museum. It was fairly easy to get to and was warm after being outside. We started off our time watching a movie. I don’t know how much our student understood, but he at least paid attention. 🙂
Visiting the Village
We enjoyed the exhibits which varied upstairs from posters, to exhibits of animals and tools.
Downstairs led up to an interactive area. The boys had fun here. From posing for silly photos, playing old time games and being amazed at the size of a wild turkey.
Both boys tried this game. The lad was fairly confident, our student was somewhat lacking. He liked the other games better. 🙂
We had a very good time. I was pleased that it was a fairly quiet day, despite it being a day off school with some planned activities. We managed to avoid most of the groups which meant we could relax and just have fun. The boys were invited to take part in a hike but decided they’d rather head out again. A great day out that I will most likely do with another student. It’s great to show them some history of Canada.
