Surrey Museum in Cloverdale

The grade 3 and 4 students in Mrs. Younger’s class enjoyed their field study to the Surrey Museum in Cloverdale.  As part of their social studies curriculum, they visited the museum to see how Surrey has changed over time.  They liked being able to enter and experience Eric Anderson’s cabin; Eric being one of the original residences of Surrey.  “There were many artifacts and old items that used to belong to the Katzie and Semiahmoo peoples,” wrote one of the students from division 9.  The students went to the textile studio and did a weaving workshop using old fashioned wooden looms.  We appreciate the parents who were able to make this trip possible by taking some time out to transport the students to the museum where they could experience some hands-on learning
