Programs for Teachers

Education at the Museum of Ontario Archaeology puts history directly in the hands of your students.  With access to almost two million artifacts, over a century of archaeological research and a full size Iroquoian long house, your students will enjoy a truly immersive learning environment while exploring over 13,000 years of human heritage in Ontario.

Our education programs extend your classroom teaching by bringing the curriculum to life.  We provide as many experiential opportunities as possible from artifact identification and archaeological excavation – to creating woodland paintings and soap stone pendants. All our programs are created to meet your curriculum needs and give you a choice of activities that extend your classroom experience beyond the blackboard.

Explore Ontario’s archaeological heritage and discover Ontario’s First Nations’ history, culture and traditions through inquiry based learning activities tied to the Ontario curriculum.
