Introduction
We are going to read some more First Nations stories today!
What is history? Oral history? Are all stories true? What is their
purpose?
Today we are going to be working in groups so I expect
that there will be noise and talking. If I hear talking
that is not on task, you will be warned once and then
you will be working on your own if you choose not to
work with others.
Review how oral histories become written stories
Talk about popular Christian view about how world was
created
Read different First Nation versions about how the world is
created
Discuss what we learned from the story

Read Creation Stories


Break the class up into 4 groups (do it by the 4 seating
groups)
I will hand out a different creation story to each group
One story is in Early Canada pg. 15
Each groups needs a SCRIBE, and 3 PRESENTERS.
Everyone else will read the story to everyone, the scribe
will write down the key points of the story and what you
learned from it, and the presenters will tell the rest of the
class a summary of the story and what their group
discovered/learned.
Formative assessment of what the students present. Walk
around to make sure that everyone is contributing to the
conversation about the story.
Present
Ask each group to present what they found in the stories

Good job everyone! Thank you for working together so well.

Next class, we will start looking at a few different first nation


groups in depth.
Exchange stories and see if they find anything different that the other
group missed
I needed to set out my expectations clearer. The groups started to get out
of hand and it was very difficult to bring them back when I needed their
attention. When I start the group part, I need to set out the expectations
clearly and let them know what will be happening if they dont follow my
expectations.
I think the students really enjoyed working in groups and I think some of
them learned a lot from this type of activity. Next time I think I would
rather them be in smaller groups so everyone is involved instead of
having a large group and almost everyone is involved.
