Education Programs

We're making history at the Joseph Schneider Haus! Our immersive curriculum-based programs emphasize hands-on learning in the Historic Haus and outbuildings. Short-term programs run concurrently with our core programs by making use of the galleries and classroom.

Contact our Education Co-ordinator to find out more at 519-742-7752 ext. 3247, or via email at: MVanHuisseling@regionofwaterloo.ca

Kinderreim - math, language, art
Songs, stories, and number fun that the Schneider children would recognize.

Two great programs to alternate between!

Feathered Friends - math, language, science and technology

We'll show you why quilts are more than something to just throw on your bed!

If you'll roll up your sleeves and lend us a hand, we'll show you how we're all connected to the natural world.

Grade 1
Schneider Family Rules - social studies
Bake, do chores, and take on the roles and responsibilities of a Schneider child.

It's Tradition! - social studies
Food, clothing, music, celebration and ceremony are all things we have in common, but do so differently.

The Mennonite community is still a large part of this Region's identity, but how does it affect us?

Grade 7 and 8
Challenge and Change - history and geography
1800 – 1900 was a time of great change for Canada. We can’t go back
in time, but we can examine it.

German Language and Heritage - language
Pennsylvania and Continental German collide when we discuss who said and did what when Kitchener was Berlin.

ESL
The Schneider's as New Canadians - language
A great opportunity to practice conversational English and discover more about a significant settler family.

Customized Programs

program has caught your interest. We'd love the opportunity to work with you on something 'off menu.'
