Local History Kit – Flooding Chilliwack


In your classroom | Guided by you | $15.00/week

Flooding has affected many aspects of life in the Fraser Valley. Over the last 150 years since colonization it has resulted in major changes to the landscape around us. Dykes surround many areas of our city and the once Sumas Lake is now drained and pumped into the Fraser River, in part for ongoing flood protection. With this kit, discover the historic floods of 1894 and 1948 with your students. The kit comes with a variety of primary source reproductions from official rehabilitation reports to personal accounts and photographs.

This kit was developed with a team of teachers from SD33. SD33 teachers can contact the school district to borrow the district copy at no cost.
