Product Description

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

This product includes:

  • instructions on how to run a drama circle
  • a teacher quick guide
  • 40 action cards in colour and ink-saving
  • discussion questions

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 a general idea of the reading difficulty for each card.

This activity aligns with:

  • the Alberta Program of Studies most Division 2 and 3
  • It is broad enough to be used to support any lesson about Canada's Indigenous People or arrival of the settlers.

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.
