Pioneer Kids Club - Virtual Edition

The Hallen family settled in 1835 in what is now called Oro Medonte Township.  Twelve year old Eleanora Hallen kept a daily journal of life in Simcoe County during this time. Many members of her family also kept journals and wrote letters.  Using these journals, and other research, the Friends of the Simcoe County Museum created an activity booklet all about the Hallen Family's time as early settlers in Simcoe County.  Parts of this booklet are available for you to download through the link below.

For a limited time, Friends of the Simcoe County Museum are also making this booklet available for free to Simcoe County ​students in the primary division, with priority given to Grade 3 students.  If you would like an activity booklet mailed to you, please email museum@simcoe.ca with your full name, grade, school, and mailing address including postal code!  Requests will be accepted until April 20, 2020, or until supplies last.  Thank you to the Friends of the Simcoe County Museum for making these booklets available for Simcoe County students!
