We were learning about the importance of First Nations peoples to Canada in Social Studies 5. Students learned about the Medicine Wheel, the importance of the Circle to FN history, and how the FN structures their government, among other concepts. After researching, students compared FN peoples` way of structuring their government with Hutterians` government structure, and found them to be quite similar, which was an eye opener for them. Using a retelling strategy, students worked in small groups to find out certain information, and then as a whole group to share their findings. Students then took the information and as a whole group, collaborated to design a poster that could be hung in any classroom in Canada, showing the structure of government of First Nations people.

Aboriginal Literatures in Canada - A Teacher's Resource Guide
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Aboriginal Literatures in Canada: A Teacher’s Resource Guide serves a double purpose: to encourage the teaching of Aboriginal literature in English high school curricula across the country because Aboriginal students deserve to be taught texts they can relate to and, because non-Aboriginal students should be educated about Aboriginal culture, history and contemporary life through the richness of Aboriginal writing with its innovative uses of the English language. Various works of Aboriginal literature are included.

Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship Program (AYEP)
Rating

High school graduation rates for First Nations, Métis Nation and Inuit people remain low, particularly at federally-funded schools on reserves. As a result, too many Indigenous youth find themselves with little opportunity once they leave school.
That’s why, in 2008, the Martin Family Initiative launched the Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship Program (AYEP), a program for Grades 11 and 12 students, designed to introduce Indigenous students to the wide range of business opportunities available within the Canadian economy. The curriculum teaches students how entrepreneurs and other business people recognize opportunities, generate ideas, and organize resources to plan successful ventures. Indigenous youth learn the perspective and skills required to achieve success in secondary school, the workplace, post-secondary education or training programs, and in daily life.

Alaska Native Perspectives on Earth and Climate
Rating

As the environmental, economic, and political consequences of climate change are felt in Alaska, the Arctic, and throughout the world, we have much to learn from both the traditional knowledge of Native peoples and ongoing scientific research. These two methods of observing nature and solving the challenges of survival can provide complementary perspectives on these issues. This collection looks at Alaska’s unique geology and the impact of development and climate change using both of these tools, and features Alaska Native scientists who are working toward solutions.

Collections to explore:
- Traditional Way of Knowing (spirit, air, fire, water, earth)
- Earth as a System (atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere)

The site includes the ability to switch to student view, which will take you to many other PBS Learning resources.
