Pioneer Pursuit

Outdoors at Fort Edmonton Park

Grade 4-6

Early Edmonton is booming! Are you ready to make your life here? Step back in time and  join us as we lead your class through the life of an early pioneer: chores, a school lesson, and entertainment. Through hands-on activities, students will experience life in early Edmonton. They will be encouraged to compare and contrast their lives with those of pioneer children and make the decision: is early Edmonton the place for me?
