This resource was created in response to a student inquiry. An Aboriginal educator showed my students deer and moose leather gloves and we started a conversation about its water-repellent property (and compared it to cotton gloves - which get soggy). This connects to the Ontario Grade 1 Science curriculum and several areas of the Kindergarten curriculum.
