Suitable for ages 6-12, this 30-minute outdoor memory and mapping activity is a fun way for children to learn about the exciting history of Kingston General Hospital.
An eye-opening scavenger hunt includes revelations of plagues, politicians, prisoners, doctors, new immigrants, a nobleman and nurses, and spans nearly 100 years! Combining education, entertainment and exercise, the activity takes place mostly outside, on the picturesque grounds of KGH.
Children also peek inside some buildings of two National Historic Sites, including the first parliament building of the Province of Canada and the only remaining Victorian-era operating ampitheatre in the entire country. Working from an activity sheet, kids test their visual observation and chart their course on a map.
