This week we made bannock. Watch the students’ blogs for their directions to appear as they finish their writing and editing. Below you can see some of the students hard at work.
This week our class has been exploring some First Nation artifacts.
We also watched a Discovery Education Live Stream from a First Nations classroom in northern Saskatchewan. While we watched, the students tweeted questions and observations that they had. Some other classes were tweeting about what they saw and wondered at the same time. Because we were all using the same hashtag, we were able to put all of the classrooms’ tweets together in a Storify.
Today Barb Frazer, an Indigenous Knowledge Systems Educator, came to answer some of our questions about First Nations people.
She has a lot of knowledge and answered a lot of the questions the students had. Thank you, Ms Frazer!
After seeing some video footage about the way our food choices can give us the power to play and learn, the students began to write out the questions they had about healthy lifestyles.
