It can be a sign or symbol of Canada or you may choose to make a video of you with your drawing and tell me why you chose to draw what you did. You may also write about it if you wish! Something to think about while your choosing what to draw or write about: Was there something mentioned in the video that you did NOT know about Canada? 

3. Share your drawing and/or video with Ms. Mountain via email or Facebook and I will enter your name in for the draw at the end of the week!

Week 7 Culture Home Learning: Challenge #1

Culture Challenge #1

Explore the many various forms of Canadian Indigenous Art on the above National Geographic website and tell me which type or which one was your favourite and why? You can share this with me through a couple of short sentences, a story, a video, or draw me a picture!

The website offers something for all ages, but you may choose which parts you wish to analyze or simply tell me your favourite type of Indigenous art. Examples on the website; watch the short two minute video and click through the slide show to look at the work of many Indigenous Canadian artists. You may also choose to scroll through the entire website, simply looking at the many different types of artwork, such as; an indigenous family roasting and eating moose meat over a fire or a hand-made wooden canoe. You may wish to write about/draw a picture of a time when you had a bonfire with your family? Did you roast anything? or Have you ever gone canoeing or boating? I would love to hear about any of your experiences :)

Teaching COVID -19 - Canada's History

Looking for something new to learn today? This website is a great resource for parents and children! This resource will help students to understand the coronavirus and the historic signficance a pandemic will have on our country. I challenge you to explore the website alone or with a parent and tell them something you have learned about pandemics.

Questions to ponder as you research:

How do you think we will teach history after this moment? 

Why will it be so important for this moment to be a part of Canada's history? 

What can YOU do now to help our Canada?
