10 Mother's Day Celebration Ideas for School (Gr. 1-8)
Rating

"There’s no doubt that mothers and other caregivers are important figures in our lives. They teach us, guide us, influence us, and cheer us on. Note that not all of us have mothers in the traditional sense and may turn to other family members or loved ones for advice, support, or encouragement. So, this Mother’s Day, let us celebrate not only the women who gave birth to us but also the amazing role models who have enriched our lives."

Enough is Enough Performance (Gr. 9-12)
Rating

Enough is Enough is a powerful 30-minute performance tailored to Saskatchewan Ministry of Education learning outcomes in Social Studies, Music, and English Language Arts for grades 9-12.

*A full teacher's guide is available to download.

Zoey Roy’s explains that:

Enough is Enough unravels what we think we know about Indigenous people in the context of Canada and rebuild a collective understanding of how we can learn from Indigenous knowledge and spirituality to make our home in Canada better for everyone. Inspired by my own pursuit of self-love, healing, and joy. The following lessons are steppingstones – a pathway for engaging the whole human self in learning and growing. Along my journey, I learned, you can’t think your way out of a broken heart. I want people to know that they are enough, to feel that they are enough, and to know that all people, animals, plants, minerals, and emotions all have a place in this world just like you. They are all enough too. Our journey is not theirs, so our judgements have no place in their journey. I want this unit to inspire compassion, will, solidarity and love.

Mental Health is Health
Rating

1 in 5 Canadians Experience Mental Illness in Any Given Year. We All Know Someone.
And yet, one of the biggest issues in our health care system – and society at large – is that mental health is not taken as seriously, and treated as urgently, as physical health. But when you hear the stories, and see the impact mental illness has on the lives of so many around us, it's hard to stand idly by. Together, we can and must change the way mental health is treated not just in Canada, but around the world. We invite you all to join the movement. Watch the videos. Share the content. Donate now.

Supporting First Nations, Métis and Inuit Youth to make Positive Changes in
their Communities: A Guide for Educators and Youth Program Facilitators

Students will learn ‘through’ the development and implementation of their action projects, rather
than ‘about’ action.

Action projects develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that are central to many youth
programs. Action projects:
• develop communication skills
• foster critical thinking skills
• promote leadership skills
• help young people to identify things that are important to them and support them to think
through the process required to make positive change
• offer opportunities for young people to experience meaningful success
• offer youth an opportunity to learn about and understand FNMI spiritual teachings, including
the teaching that all living beings have a Spirit
