Product Description

Focus on research skills with this low-prep project that teaches reading/creating maps, reading photographs and diagrams, notetaking and synthesizing information to research sacred plants of the Indigenous People of Canada used for healing, medicine and in their special ceremonies such as smudging and prayers.

Specific instructions are included to teach each of the skills.

This package includes:

  • complete teacher lesson plan including possible modifications for differentiation
  • maps showing locations the plants grow in Canada
  • photographs of all the plants
  • a diagram of the medicine wheel
  • articles about each of the four sacred plants: sage, sweetgrass, Red Cedar and tobacco
  • a variety of student templates for differentiated options
  • student instructions for each skill and task
  • student examples in different formats
  • all the research materials you need (so you don't need to look for anything)

Everything you need for students to create a final project is included except for empty legal size file folders (or poster board in you prefer) for the presentation.

You can use your own paper or print our templates.

Some of the students information cards are better if printed in colour, but instructions are included for a workaround if colour printing is not an option for you.

This product was designed to start creating products that are based on concept learning. If can be an extension to the Alberta Program of Studies plants unit in Grade 4 or to learn about Indigenous cultures in social studies.

If you have strong students, it can be used with Grade 4, but we recommend this product for Grade 5 and up based on the reading level if you plan to have students work independently. Ideas to accommodate a variety of strengths or weaknesses in reading is included.

It has been classroom tested with students in Grades 4 and 5 with success, though Grade 4 students required extra support. We read the articles aloud to the whole class to overcome reading challenges.
