Grade 3: Pioneers of the Porcupine

Timmins Museum Education Programmes


Life was much different for the early settlers of Timmins than it is for us today!

Students will explore aspects of daily life for the first inhabitants of our city using photographs and artifacts. Discover what chores children were responsible for around the house, what happens if you interrupt your teacher in a one-room school house, and how to buy coffee at the general store if you didn’t have money.
