PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This teaching resource offers an in-depth coverage of all the indicators for the outcome RW4.1 – Analyze the strategies Saskatchewan people have developed to meet the challenges presented by the natural environment.


Although it has been written to meet the outcome and indicators for the Saskatchewan Social Studies curriculum, it will meet the needs of educators teaching about how the people in the province are able to meet all the challenges the natural environment puts in their life.

Lessons are presented in the order of the indicators:

a. List the challenges and opportunities climate presents for the residents of Saskatchewan

b. Determine safety measures necessary for living in Saskatchewan climate (clothing; safety package for vehicle: never leave vehicle when stranded in winter; checking highway hotline; not licking frozen metal)
c. Retell the stories of Elders, traditional knowledge keepers, and senior citizens about surviving weather extremes (drought, cold, blizzards, tornadoes, extreme heat)

d. Collect the natural weather forecasting techniques of Elders, traditional knowledge keepers, senior citizens, and others with local knowledge

e. Represent the traditions and practices Saskatchewan people developed when faced with isolation, including First Nations practices adopted by Europeans

f. Research past and present techniques to withstand the Saskatchewan climate

g. Investigate the technological evolution of farming practices in Saskatchewan, including crop variety development, pesticide and herbicide use, and soil and water conservation
