Learn at MOA

Hands on History.

Educational Programs

Education at the MOA puts history in the hands of your students.

MOA education programming is designed to complement the Ontario learning curriculum with a specific focus on science, technology, social studies, and mathematics. We provide hands-on experiences that expand your classroom and encourage students to engage and personally connect with Ontario’s past.

On-Line

Virtual Education Programs

Virtual education provides a remote option to on-site learning. This is a great way for teachers who are interested in incorporating archaeology / history / heritage programs into their classrooms, but are time or location-constrained.

Online Virtual Education Programs

Our virtual education programs complement the Ontario curriculum and are tailored to different grade levels. Virtual programs can be customized to your classroom needs with pre-activity, live tours, and post-activity options.  Our virtual programs require no special materials and contain only optional printables. We use a combination of videos, Google Slides, and interactive worksheets to build programs with varying and engaging activities.

Cost: $150

60 min live outreach


Connected North

We are also delighted to accommodate online learning options to classrooms in northern Canadian Territories and Provinces through Connected North.
