- A project of LSF
Students view a video about Indigenous Peoples’ connection to their land and place and reflect about their special place in nature. They share their stories and places in a talking circle and reflect on the connection to place and caring for the land and natural world. The activity works well as an introduction or reflection about climate change and how personal connections to places can shape our sense of stewardship. Students discuss how climate change may affect their special places and how they can take action to protect the land and its resources.
This video would support the teaching of any outcomes related to First Nations perspectives and climate change. The resource supports Science outcomes related to ecosystems and the interconnectedness of nature. To enhance the learning invite an Indigenous Elder or Knowledge Keeper to speak to the class about their connection to land and stewardship and the effects of climate change. Students could research more about the impacts of climate change on Indigenous Peoples in their community.
