grades two and three students were immersed into the 1950's! Along
with studying Henry Huggins, By Beverly Clearly, students built a
1950's town in the classroom including a malt shop and even a black and
white linoleum floor! The children spent considerable time at the
Glenbow Museum in a week-long immersion at
Museum School, and connected with twenty schools from all over North
America in our
Museum Connections project as they shared their museum journeys with one
another. This included chatting online with
Museum experts from all over North America!
What you will need...
The virtual tour of our museum uses
QuickTime Virtual Reality technology and
VR Worx software to allow you to
move around in the room and pick up and examine artifacts. It's not as good
as the real thing, but you can use the Virtual 1950's Museum to learn more
about the 1950's and the artifacts that tell so much about this incredible
period in history. These grades two and three children took all of the
photos, and even created most of the "object movies."
You will need a minimum of QuickTime3 and the QuickTime
Plug In for Netscape installed on your Mac or Windows computer to view the
panorama and object movies on these pages. You can get the QuickTime 6
player along with directions for installing and using them, by clicking
