Coal Miners Child

Grade 1-2 Sept. to Nov. & Jan. to June

Experience what life was like for children 100 years ago. Students will visit the miner’s cottage to see the type of home many Nanaimo families lived in and their daily routine of chores. Take a seat in wooden desks complete with ink wells and participate in a lesson with the strict teacher. Make jam from scratch just like families used to and play with toys that were popular in the early 1900’s.
