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
This submission by Susie Grace, Ramona De Graaf, and Stephanie Watkins, includes an authentic hook (presented in the powerpoint) for the need to learn unit pricing. There are 3 activities. The first discovery activity takes quite a bit of preparation but the second main activity takes very little time to prepare. The prices are authentic, the pictures are authentic and the activity is lifelike for sure. Also, more than just unit pricing the main and supplementary activities also look at responsible buying. Why do you choose product X over product Y? Are you only considering the unit price?
