Festival Activity Centres

Medical Mystery


Students are called upon to solve the historical medical mystery. Diagnose the patient's illness, how did they get sick? Students can compare medical and scientific knowledge of 1914 to today.


Heritage and Citizenship, Grade 3 (Early Settlements in Upper Canada)

Students investigate and describe the communities of early settlers and First Nation peoples in Upper Canada around 1800. 
They research interactions between new settlers and existing communities of First Nation peoples and French settlers and identify factors that helped to shape the development of the various communities. 
Students also compare communities of the past with those of the present.

  1. describe the communities of early settlers and First Nation peoples in Upper Canada around 1800;
  2. use a variety of resources and tools to gather, process, and communicate information about interactions between new settlers and existing communities, including First Nation peoples, and the impact of factors such as heritage, natural resources, and climate on the development of early settler communities;
  3. compare aspects of life in early settler communities and present-day communities.

Life Systems, Grade 5 (Human Organ Systems)

Organ systems are components of a larger system (the body) and as such, work together and affect one another.

Choices we make affect our organ systems and in turn, our overall health.

  1. analyse the impact of human activities and technological innovations on human health;
  2. demonstrate an understanding of the structure and function of human body systems and interactions within and between systems.
