It was a good visit where we learned a lot about black history. The presenters were clear about their expectations and their knowledge base. They did a good job of helping the children understand the problems of slavery and the new life black people had in Canada.
Since I’m short on a lot of writing time I did up a video.
The day was divided into three parts.
- Scavenger hunt. The children were divided up into groups and given clues to follow.
- A play. The children put on plays that had something to do with their scavenger hunt. The plays encompassed history such as the underground railroad.
- Lunch and some free time to explore. They needed to stay out of the buildings and off the outdoor exhibits but otherwise were free to roam. It was a really nice day outside so the children had fun playing games on the lawn after they finished eating.
