Full Project Summary
Red Deer Lake School’s residency with Trickster Theatre will create a show that focuses on “How Being a Canadian Kid Has Changed in The Last 150 Years”. Our goal is for students to gain an appreciation of the similarities and differences in the lifestyles we have now versus 150 years ago.
We will be looking at topics like: a day in the life of a kid from 1867, how technology has changed the way we live, a typical school day - a then and now comparison, and how families have changed. We will also look at changes in farming practise, how kids engage with the world - then and now - and the change in the way we relate to our First Nations neighbours.
These topics will give students an insight into how life has already changed so much and let them ask questions about what the next 150 years might bring.
Project OutcomeBeing a K-9 school we feel it is important for our students to work collaboratively towards a common theme, “How Being a Canadian Kid Has Changed in The Last 150 Years”. The residency will be a teaching tool that unites our school and allows us to build relationships between and among teachers and students. This opportunity will allow us to further bond as a school community, allowing our students to express themselves creatively, build confidence that will help them now and throughout their lives.
