Students sat in a circle around a collection of about twenty posters of First
Nations art laid on the floor. Students shared thoughts about what they saw in
common in many of the pieces of art (ie. Animals, faces, colors, etc.)
Students looked at the piece of art nearest them and looked for animals, faces,
etc. We listed the ideas that had been shared.
The following day, students were given a graphic organizer containing each of
the ideas generated the day before. In pairs, they analyzed one piece of art

Arctic Peoples and Archaelogy
Rating

Originally conceived of as a curriculum resource for Nunavut schools, this comprehensive interactive presentation provides an excellent introduction to the arctic, and to the people who made this environment their home for the past thousands of years.

The presentation begins by introducing the arctic environment. An interactive migration activity concludes this first section, encouraging the student to consider the challenges of a family at the turn of a season as they decide where to travel next to find the sustenance on which their lives depend. The next section introduces the arctic peoples, their tools, shelters, and their modes of transportation.

The third section introduces the science of archaeology along with the regulatory environment for accessing archaeology sites in Nunavut today. The final section focuses on a rich archaeological site in the High Arctic. This section is also interactive, requiring the student’s assistance to identify objects and make decisions about the Tuniit and the Thule who were known to have occupied this site.

Canadian History from a First Nations Perspective
Rating

Socially-based Curriculum Unit
The main focus of the unit, developed for CHC2P, Grade 10 Applied History, is to look at the curriculum from a First Nation’s perspective. The unit was developed to provide students with the knowledge and understanding of how First Nations contributed to the development of Canadian society. The unit also looks at both how events in history both impacted on First Nations communities, and how history was shaped by First Nations contributions.

The unit begins by looking at the effects of Residential Schools on individuals and communities in the past and today. Next students will look at First Nations contributions to the war effort in World War One and World War Two, by looking at some extraordinary individuals such as Tom Longboat, Francis Pegamagabow, and Henry Norwest. Students will also explore how First Nations people had to fight for equal rights in Canada through creating their own political organizations. There will also be a focus on the current realities in First Nations communities, which will be highlighted by looking at the issues of land claims and self-government. Lastly the unit will end with a culminating task that highlights a wide range of First Nations leaders and their contributions in the past and present to Canadian society.
