21st Century Artifact:  Social Studies 5
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

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.
