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.

Description
I created this project during my practicum, and adapted it to both French Immersion 8 and Core French 11. A few years later a colleague adapted it for Spanish 10. I'm uploading it to share with others on behalf of my Professional Specialist Association: the BCATML. Please join us! www.bcatml.org
