Description
Incorporating a worm bin into the classroom provides a unique way for students to look at the life cycle of a worm up close as well as investigate how the worm works to support a healthy environment. It lends several ideas for Cross-Curricular activities including ELA, SS, PE, Applied Skills and Design and more.

Description
Class 1 A short video documentary, filmed at a Siwash Gathering in Tsilhqot'in territory (near Sugar Cane), introduces the game of Lahal. Learners will listen and watch to learn not only the rules of the game, but also the purpose both past and present. Learners will learn about the materials, the hand signals as well as the object and procedures of the game. Learners will be introduced the the value this game holds for the Tsihlqot'in community both past and present. Learners will then be asked to calculate theoretical probabilities of certain results in the game. Class 2 Learners will be introduced to experiential probability and will have an opportunity to conduct a math experiment in small groups. Follow up Learners will have a chance to reflect on their learning after watching a first nation's dance celebrating Laval. Finally, if the teacher wishes, the actual game of Lahal can be played! Worksheets, links to videos, music, etc. provided.

The Casel (2017) resource, describes Social Emotional Learning as the way adults and children learn to manage and understand emotions, show empathy for each other, set goals, make responsible decisions and establish positive relationships. I will begin to share ideas on picture books I believe to support Social Emotional Learning in children, youth and adults. This blogs focus will be on the picture book: Red A Crayons Story by Michael Hall Lesson 1: Identity Focus: Core Competency on Self-Awareness & Social Awareness
