On Friday, January 18th, Ian McCallum, a Itinerant Resource Teacher with the Simcoe County District School Board, came to our class to do a presentation. He shared some of his experiences growing up as a child in a very small Aboriginal community in Southern Ontario, explained some First Nations teachings and conducted a smudging ceremony with the class.
This presentation was the perfect introduction to the Grade 6 Aboriginal Studies unit, which is scheduled from February through June.
Here is Ian's visit, in pictures:
