While studying the history of Alberta, two grade 4 classes at G. W. Skene Elementary School in Calgary, Alberta, Canada began to question why people came to Alberta, where they came from, and what did they bring with them. In order to find answers to these questions, it was decided that it was important to begin by understanding the students' own family histories.
Students interviewed family members and prepared a short report on their family history. Along with their family histories, special family artifacts were also presented. We decided we needed a place to share our family artifacts, therefore our Cultural Family Artifact Museum was created.
Our virtual museum was created using QuickTime Virtual Reality technology.
We hope you enjoy our museum and will contact us to share your family stories, questions or comments.
If you are having problems viewing our movie, download QuickTime Player version 4.0 or later.
