This bundle of seven resources includes a wide variety of activities for students from informational text, comprehension questions, and internet research. Students will learn about First Nations and Inuit peoples in a general sense (Graphic Organizers resources) and about specific characteristics, such as how different groups adapted to living with nature. These resources concentrate on the historical aspect of Canada’s first peoples rather than a modern perspective.
