Explore what it was like to be a child during the early 1900's and view the historic photos that capture the development and early growth of the community.
A Child's Life is an innovative educational program that was piloted in four Pasadena Unified School District elementary schools in 2003. Third grade classes are invited to the Museum to explore what it was like to be a child during the early 1900s. Students are ushered into a unique classroom for their time travel experience. The youngsters view historic photos capturing the development and early growth of the community. They dress up in period clothing, listen to turn of the century music and play with toys and games from the past. Each student is given a special book, The Way Pasadena Was, written by local author Kathleen Thorne-Thomsen and published by the Pasadena Museum of History. The colorful publication is full of photographs and stories about Pasadena one hundred years ago. The book and the program are designed to support the third grade curriculum standards for the public schools.
