A Grade Four and Five Social Studies and Language Arts Unit to Engage Your Students' Hearts and Minds

Roedde House Museum is a local Vancouver Historic House which offers hands-on activities for your students and supports and enriches the Grade 4 and 5 Social Studies and Language Arts Curricula. Guided tours by experienced docents support and enhance the downloadable Roedde House Museum : Windows to the Past”  which is a complementary curriculum in both English and French. A short five minute video showing the house is available, Click here to see the  School Program video. This program can also supplement Grade 6 & 7 Language Arts.

The school program is usually two hours long, beginning at 9.45 am and ending at 11.45 am. It is divided into three activities: a tour of the house, artifact discovery kit, and architectural drawing along with a walking tour of Barclay Square. A school tour reminder will be sent to the teachers prior to the visit to instruct them about the tour details.

Before the visit, teachers will receive a kit, the “Windows to the Past” artifacts box, which they are strongly encouraged to open and discover with their students. The museum will arrange for the kit to be delivered approximately two weeks before the visit and it should be returned when you come for your tour. Any damage, loss or theft of objects from the kit will be the responsibility of the school/class.

A fee of $4 per child will apply. Payment can be made by cheque (payable to the Roedde House Preservation Society) or cash and is due on the date of the class visit. Subsidies are possible for Inner City Schools.

If you are concerned about the special needs of any particular students, please advise us so that we may try to accommodate them as best as we can. The main floor of the museum is wheelchair-accessible through the kitchen door, on the side of the house, but unfortunately the upstairs is not.
