Description: 
Interviews conducted in 1980 by children enrolled in grade 7 social studies classes in Saskatchewan. The Saskatchewan Archives Board invited these children to interview their grandparents or older members of their communities to record their reminiscences about the pioneering days in Saskatchewan, including migration, farm life, domestic life and life histories. The aim of the programme was to enhance students' understanding of the contributions made by their grandparents and other senior citizens to Saskatchewan's development, to introduce students and teachers to oral history as a teaching tool, and to record, for preservation as historical documentation, the recollections and reminiscences of Saskatchewan's pioneers.
