Kensington Market Scavenger Hunt
Financial Literacy & Cultural Diversity Walk
This two-part tour explores key curriculum points on immigration, cultural diversity and financial literacy, and is especially aimed at Grades 6-8, but can work for higher or lower grades too. Students discover various primary sources in the market to complete our two-part tour. Part One is an Immigration Scavenger Hunt, comparing two vibrant communities from the past and present, and a Budget Challenge that asks “families” from two different income brackets to shop for the same meal.
NOTE: to complete these two activities, students will work independently in groups of 4-6, with one guide per class. If you would like to bring additional supervisors or parent volunteers, they are free of charge.
