Explore our digital school programs to aid in your online teaching strategy.

Museum of Surrey school programs are created by expert staff with in-depth knowledge of provincial curriculum and Surrey’s history. As both schools and the museum are temporarily closed, we have modified three of our favorite programs to be delivered by teachers online.  

Homestead to Highrise (K-2)

Food, transportation, access to emergency services and getting an education—all were fundamental needs in an early Surrey community. By exploring jobs, school and homelife, students relate settler experiences in a growing community with contemporary living in Surrey.
