Explore your heritage and the heritage of Ontario! You’ll develop a sense of pride for where you came from by learning traditional craft and cooking skills, as well learn to respect people whose background is different than yours.
We’ll investigate where your ancestors came from, what our Indigenous Peoples taught European settlers and how both these populations lived.
In this project, you’ll:
- Gain an appreciation of historically significant people, buildings and events
- Learn about early settlers to Ontario and what they endured
- Learn heritage crafts and recipes
- Learn how immigration changed many aspects of our heritage
