Homeschool Programs

Homeschool Education Programs

Enhance your visit to the Central British Columbia Railway and Forestry Museum by adding a Homeschool Education Program.

The CBCRFM maintains that all students have the right to education, including the opportunity to discover local history. To accomplish this, we provide several “hands-on” lesson plans, which present supplementary knowledge about resources and extraction. Furthermore, the Education Programs are offered on-site, at the CBCRFM, and remotely through take-home packages, available for pick up through the front desk at the CBCRFM.

The Homeschool Education plans are designed to meet the current BC curriculum and big ideas, but can be adapted to fit many grade levels, and individual education plans.

Curriculum and Big Ideas

Social Studies:

People shape the local environment, and the local environment shapes who we are and how we live. Local actions have global consequences, and global actions have local consequences. The pursuit of valuable natural resources has played a key role in changing the land, people, and communities of Canada. Natural resources continue to shape the economy and identity of different regions of Canada.

Science:

The motion of objects depends on their properties. Forces influence the motion of an object, machines are devices that transfer force and energy. Energy can be transformed, conserved, and its transformation can affect living things and the environment.

Pick-up and drop-off procedures: please return the Homeschool Education Programs within the timespan specified by the Museum staff while following COVID-19 physical distancing measures.
