Activity Guide Overview

The videos that are embedded below have activities and guiding questions found within the accompanying activity guide. The guide can be used as prompts for further inquiry or can be used as is. There are also links to fillable pdf documents broken down by each unit of learning.

If you have a membership you can access the teacher guides which contain answer keys.

The activities are based on these key understandings:

  1. Indigenous civilizations have always been here
  2. Indigenous civilizations are sophisticated and complex societies
  3. Everything is grounded in relationships and connection with the land
  4. Indigenous civilizations are diverse throughout this land.
Students will be exposed to Indigenous ways of knowing, doing and being by examining both past and present ways of life in order to deepen their appreciation of how these key aspects can enhance their own understanding of their relationship to Indigenous Peoples.

Indigenous languages will also be embedded to enhance learning and provide authentic, accurate information from direct sources (e.g., language speakers such as Oneida, Anishinaabe, Oji-Cree and Cree).

Indigenous women have always been strong and by listening to their words, acknowledging their experiences, and learning about their unique challenges, we can together take steps towards respect and equality.

Contributions to Science

The Science curriculum requires students to explore various careers related to the areas of science under study and to research the education and training required for these careers (see the expectations in the first strand of every course in the program, “Scientific Investigation Skills and Career Exploration”).

The science program should provide students with access to materials that reflect diversity with respect to gender, race, culture, and ability. Diverse groups of people involved in scientific activities and careers should be prominently featured.

It is important that learning activities include opportunities for students to describe, study, or research how women and men from a variety of backgrounds, including Indigenous peoples, have contributed to science, used science to solve problems in their daily life and work, or been affected by scientific processes or phenomena.

Here are some examples:
