Description

This set of drama circle cards teaches students about the struggles the First Nations or Indigenous People in Canada faced during colonization. As part of the truth and reconciliation process, this product talks about the series of events since the arrival of Europeans including reserves, treaties, missionaries, and residential schools.

This engaging activity includes:

  • instructions on how to run the circle.
  • suggestions on how to prepare your students for the content.
  • a teacher quick guide so you can preplan for your students.
  • 40 action cards in colour and ink-saving versions.
  • blank cards so you can modify the activity for your class.
  • guiding discussion questions to follow the circle.

This activity is not intended to be the end of a set of lessons about Indigenous People and their history, but instead the beginning of a conversation about how things have happened in the past and how knowing this information can help guide us all toward healing in the future.

Please see the preview for the reading difficulty of the cards.

This activity aligns with:

  • the Alberta Program of Studies for most Division 2 and 3 classes

This activity supports:

  • any lesson about Indigenous People or the arrival of Europeans in North America.

It has been classroom tested with students in grades four and five with success, but it does deal with mature themes and topics related to Residential Schools, so be sure you know your students well to prepare them for the seriousness of the conversation.
