Leaving Home, Finding Home in Oshawa Education Program
Travel on a journey through the Oshawa Museum's latest exhibit that connects oral histories, artefacts, and primary and secondary sources: Leaving Home, Finding Home in Oshawa. Students will experience what it was like to be Displaced Persons in Oshawa.
Using the stories from those who contributed to the exhibit, students will research their lives, learn to empathize with the unfamiliar experiences of Displaced Persons and contemplate their own family’s arrival in Canada.
This program is free and offered as a virtual program, facilitated by Museum staff. While directly linked to the grade six social studies Ontario curriculum, it can be tailored to other grades discussing aspects of traditions and immigration. Teachers will need to schedule 60 - 90 minutes for this program to be facilitated effectively.
The Oshawa Museum’s first digital memory box is waiting for you to unpack! Do You Remember? An Online Trip Down Memory Lane, created for an older adult audience, features twenty advertisements from between 1967 and 1999 that will have you rockin’, rollin’ and reminiscing! The digital memory box includes discussion questions, word puzzles, and links to Spotify playlists.
