Program Outline

At the Heritage Schoolhouse, students will re-enact a typical school day in 1850.  Students will “step back in time” to experience various lessons, a recitation, a spelling bee and other aspects of classroom routine.  By the end of the day students will have a better understanding of what it was like to live and go to school in York Region in 1850.


Once in the classroom there will be a brief introduction to the facility, the historic rules, and then the role-playing will begin.  The Schoolmistress/master will lead the class through the lessons.

Lunch Hour

Lunch Break (known as the Dinner Break) and outdoor recess.


Role-play will continue after the dinner break. The class will end with the opportunity for a period of reflection, exploring the students' experiences in the historical classroom.
