School Programs

Langley Centennial Museum has been delivering quality school programs to the students in Langley, and beyond, since 1974. For the past 45 years we have been sharing our heritage and educational expertise with the students of this province.  The museum has a full-time Arts and Heritage Educator, highly qualified instructors, and a team of over 50 volunteer docents.

What we offer

Langley Centennial Museum School Programs offer a unique learning opportunity. Whether it is a program led by our incredible docent team at the museum, a trip back in time to the Lochiel One Room Schoolhouse, or a visit by one of professional Instructors to your classroom, the result will be the same, an engaging and highly educational experience.  We also have a number of very economical self-guided programs which can take place inside the museum or in the form of walking tours which take the class out into the surrounding community.  

School Programming is currently unavailable due to COVID-19.

 

ARCHAEOLOGY: EXCAVATION & INTERPRETATION  |  Grades 6 - 7

Students transform into archaeologists and excavate artifacts; measure, classify, and complete lab analysis sheets; and interpret how Indigenous artifacts were once used, and what they can tell us about BC First Nations culture.

 

COMMUNITIES PAST & PRESENT  |  Grades 1 - 3

Students roll up their sleeves and break out the elbow grease in this hands-on program that recreates the roles and responsibilities of pioneer school children. Students try their hands at farm chores, washing clothes, baking, and shopping. 

 

FRASER VALLEY FAMILIES  |  Grades K - 2

Students learn basic human, family, and community needs; discuss similarities and differences between the needs of early First Nations and European families and those of today’s families. Students handle historical artifacts, discuss seasonal activities of First Nations, and play pioneer and traditional First Nations’ games.

 

MEDICINES, MALADIES, & MIRACLES  |  Grades 6 - 7

Students take a walk through the medical maladies of the past by handling old doctor’s tools, playing plaguing games, and discovering the innovations and breakthroughs that have brought the field of medicine from misguided to miraculous.

 

PIONEER CHRISTMAS  |  Grades K - 1

Christmas traditions of long ago are brought to life as students handle typical pioneer gifts, bake gingerbread cookies, and make popcorn tree decorations.

 

SHAPES & SYMBOLISM: INTRODUCTION TO INDIGENOUS ART  |  Grades 3 - 6

Making use of the museum’s appreciable collection of First Nations’ art, students will be taken on an artistic journey of discovery where shapes and symbols convey deep cultural beliefs, myths, and traditions. Unique hands-on activities will allow students to employ the techniques they have observed to create their own works of art.
