An Inukshuk's Journey Through Div 1 SS

Feedback form is now closed.
Participants are “building” an Inukshuk as a metaphor to discover the possibilities in ‘building’ connections to the Division 1 outcomes in Social Studies. The Inukshuk is made of stones and one of the most common uses by the Inuit was for navigational markers. Each one unique (like students) and if lost these directional markers helped people find their way back to their community to offer their gifts and talents and receive from others. Valuing cooperation, respecting of others and the part they play in enhancing the world they live in. The making of an Inukshuk provides something concrete to attach these more ‘abstract’ concepts in the curriculum. It is perfect for the K.1 I Am Unique and K.2 I Belong outcomes. For grade 1, Citizenship: Belonging and Connecting, the Inukshuk students build can be a starting point for discussing the symbols and landmarks of other communities (eg. Vegreville’s Easter Egg) and distinguishing the landmarks in their own community and how they are connected to their world. The Inukshuk can also be woven into grades 2 (A Community in the Past) and grade 3 (Connecting with the World as the Inukshuk was the symbol of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and the ATA teacher retirement gift in 2018). Come ready to explore as we journey through Div. 1 curriculum and share your ideas and leave with more than your unique Inukshuk.
