The Maritime Museum of BC is going virtual with MMBC Discovers Live and many of our learning programs! Our programs have been designed using the BC curriculum, and adapted for a virtual format using everything we know about learning online! Choose from two formats:
Participants join us for a program LIVE using Zoom Meetings, where they have the chance to interact with our museum educators. After purchasing a Live program, you will receive a link to register for the Zoom Meeting. Participants who join us live will also receive access to the recorded program!
Receive a link to the recorded version of the live program for a reduced cost. The recorded program will only be available 24 hours after the live program has occurred.
IMMIGRATION TO THE WEST COAST
Grades 5 & 6 Social Studies
Immigration to BC involved many hardships as well as opportunities. From exploration and first contact, to settlement and global migration, the motivation for trade, prosperity and freedom sparked multiple waves of immigration. These journeys forever changed the lives of individuals, families and communications, and built BC as we know it today. Students will become museum detectives with a suitcase exploration activity, delving into the experiences of immigrants and how immigration has built Canadian society.
