Description

Here are a few quick and easy to prepare activities you can do with your elementary class as part of recognizing Orange Shirt Day. As part of our commitment to Truth and Reconciliation, we feel it is important to teach our students about the history of Residential Schools in Canada.

This remembrance product includes:

  • an instruction page for teachers with suggestions on where to find resources online for your classroom.
  • a pledge sheet to remember the legacy of Residential Schools in Canada.
  • a pledge sheet to promise to teach others about the legacy of Residential Schools in Canada.
  • small orange shirt cards with ways to use them in your school.
  • Blank Shirt to design.

Ninja Note: These activities were designed to be quick to prep and easy to use, but they should be implemented with books, videos and lessons found online and should be the voices of Indigenous People. We have an entire blog post full of ideas to complement this lesson.

We've chosen Grades 3-6, but these activities could be done with students as young as grade one or as old as middle school. They are simplistic for older grades but would work well with English Language Learners or students reading and writing below their assigned grade level. The point of Orange Shirt Day is to recognize and acknowledge the impact of Residential Schools, so every age should take part.

❤ Every child matters ❤
