EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROGRAMS
Fort Henry offers the opportunity for students to experience much more than just history lesson.
Designed in partnership with the Limestone District School Board, this hands-on approach is designed to achieve your curriculum objectives. Your classroom will be moved to a British Fort interpreted during the year 1867, Canada's Confederation. The core curriculum will include: language studies, technology and design, social studies, physical education, history, geography and geology.
Start your visit at the new Fort Henry Discovery Centre. It features interactive experiences that shares stories not told inside the walls of the Fort. Details on many of the historic characters who shaped the history of Canada and military strategies will be told in a detailed, fun and relevant fashion with guest-triggered interactive features. Meet an American spy through a fascinating story of international intrigue. Learn the different ways Officers and Soldiers ate their meals while sitting at their dining table. Help a doctor diagnose an illness and recommend the treatment. Meet the ghost of Canada’s First Prime Minister – Sir. John A. Macdonald and hear some of his political trials and tribulations. Line up tall ships in your cannon scope sailing in Kingston’s Navy Bay and try to sink them with an interactive cannon. Choose your rank and regiment yourself on a computer screen and take the picture home with you. Your visit to the Discovery Centre is included in the admission or program price.
Please book at least 5 days in advance of your desired date of visit to ensure that we are able to meet your requirements.
