About the Workshop
Consistent with the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, growing numbers of educators are recognizing the importance of incorporating First Peoples’ perspectives and content into science courses and are seeking resources to help them do so authentically and respectfully.

In this workshop, see how First Peoples’ perspectives in science can be recognized and included in science inquiry and take home examples of fully developed units that correspond with the Big Ideas and Learning Standards in the BC Provincial Science Curriculum for grades 5- 9.

All participants will receive a copy of the Science First Peoples Teacher Resource Guide (available as a free download at www.fnesc.ca/science-first-peoples/.

Participants be introduced to the Science First Peoples units: Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Plants and Connection to Place, Power from the Land, Bears and Body Systems, Climate Change, Shaking and Flooding, Interconnectedness of the Spheres, and Ocean Connections, and they will have the opportunity to browse supplementary First Peoples science resources.
