Description
The Furious Fractions game is an attempt to make learners increase their fluency with fractions while also incorporating Aboriginal content into the learning process. Students will be grouped together and assigned a Tsimshian village that they must protect from an impending attack from a Haida war canoe. To protect their village they must create whole numbers from a loose collection of varying fractions in an assigned bag. Once they have made a whole number they will be rewarded a piece of fortification. Their village will only be safe once it has been entirely fortified and this must be achieved before the Haida war canoe arrives. The war canoe is moving towards the villages at a set rate and so the students' time is limited. The game is exciting and can be developed for varying math levels. The addition of sound effects such as drumming and other printed materials can act to further engage learners.

Description
D’un bout à l’autre du monde, les cultures varient énormément. Mais elles ont un point en commun : là où il y a des gens, il y a aussi des chiens et des chats. Voilà une des choses que vos élèves apprendront grâce à notre trousse pédagogique. On y trouve une vidéo, un magazine, des leçons, des exercices et différentes ressources qui permettront aux élèves de mieux connaître les caractéristiques et les besoins des chiens et des chats. Les jeunes découvriront également que des liens très forts unissent les humains aux chiens et aux chats depuis des millénaires.

Les leçons et les activités ont pour objectif d’encourager les élèves à examiner les responsabilités importantes que nous avons envers les chiens et les chats, et à en discuter. Les élèves verront aussi que la façon dont les gens vivent avec ces animaux domestiques varie sensiblement d’un pays et d’une culture à l’autre. La trousse comprend un guide de l’enseignant avec des leçons et des activités pour la classe (en fonction de deux différents groupes d’âge). Vous trouverez aussi des feuilles d’exercice, un magazine pour les élèves avec glossaire, une vidéo, une affiche murale, des activités à faire à la maison, etc.

Description
This lesson involves using the "jigsaw" method of examining the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's "Call to Action" report. Students are in groups of four and each group receives a section of the Call to Action report (ie. 3 pages per group). Using the worksheet provided, students read, discuss and fill out highlights from the report. Next, the teacher brings the class together and each group shares their findings. In this way, some of the many highlights of the Call to Action report is covered. Finally, students can discuss a possible "action" in support of the report.
