The Heritage Fair program is a student-centered, inquiry learning opportunity to explore Saskatchewan and Canada in fulfillment of Saskatchewan provincial curriculum.
For the past 20 years teachers and students from across Saskatchewan have been participating in the Heritage Fair program. This year, 3300 students from over 180 classrooms across the province created a Heritage Fair project.
Students from grade 4 to 8 develop their Heritage Fair projects in the classroom through inquiry learning. Students research their topics and create a written report, visual display and an oral presentation. A classroom or school Heritage Fair is held and students are selected to represent their classroom or school at a Regional Heritage Fair. At some schools, a teacher organizes an extracurricular Heritage Fair club and from this students are selected to represent their school at a Regional Heritage Fair. At each Regional Heritage Fair several students are selected to participate in the Provincial Heritage Fair.
Registration for the 2018 Heritage Fairs season will begin Dec. 1, 2017.
