Grade 3 - 6
FIRST PEOPLES OF NORTH AMERICA
Who are the First peoples of Turtle Island? Where do they live? What do they eat? What was life like for a child living in an Iroquoian village during the 17th century? Bring your classes to the Gardiner Museum to find out all of these answers and more.
With a full day program, the first peoples communities and their cultures are examined through slide presentations, artifact handling and hands on activities.
Following an introductory discussion or morning session in the full day program, students will work with a ceramic artist and create celebration poles, masks or figures in canoes out of clay.
This program is available as a half or full day option and is recommended for students in grade 3 to 6, and for those studying Canadian Aboriginal people and First Nations studies. This program can be adapted for all age levels including high school and University level students.
