WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING:
Why Animate Local History?
This day-long workshop encourages students to identify what they value about their heritage and their city. They become detectives, guided through the Vancouver Museum exhibits with an objective: to look for clues to the past in order to bring their own Vancouver story to life through animation.Curriculum Links
This project has several links to the school curriculum, helping students to develop skills in such areas as teamwork, communication, and cooperation. Activities include a museum visit, interviewing, storyboarding, and animation. Students develop skills in math, time management, storytelling, and historical research. Learning how to do animation integrates all areas of the curriculum, enabling students to apply their multiple intelligences to a project-based learning experience.Celebrating Vancouver's Diversity
What better place to get inspired than the Vancouver Museum galleries! Find out what baskets woven from cedar trees tell about the lives of First Nations people. See what houses looked like in the early 1900s, what children wore, and what games they played. Browse through old newspapers, or board the car of a steam train. Look in suitcases that contain objects brought from far away lands to learn the stories of families who had to travel long distances to find a new home in Vancouver.
This program is a partnership of the Reel 2 real International Film Festival for Youth, the Vancouver Museum, and the National Film Board of Canada.
