Activities to do in class

To introduce elementary school students to the work of craftspeople, the Musée des maîtres et artisans du Québec offers a selection of educational videos (in French only) featuring contemporary craftspeople who share their passion for creating handmade objects!

The videos are accompanied by notebooks to download (in French only), one for the teacher and one for the student, and each notebook includes a short biography of the craftsman, a description of the history of the trade presented, keywords, science concepts for 2nd and 3rd cycle students to discover and an activity to carry out in class. This pedagogical tool, adapted to the needs of students and teachers, uses skills targeted by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec and allows students to explore the world of science in a fun and educational way.
