Sky Stories: A First Nations Journey. Teacher’s Resources

This posting is strictly for primary teachers, but still a good read for everyone else. As a primary teacher I have taught grade three science a few times, this includes space and the planets. This is an excellent lesson plan on incorporating First Nations legends and beliefs into the unit. This was published by the Vancouver planetarium to be used in conjunction with viewing of the Sky Stories film. Although this is a western science based lesson plan (and somewhat commercial at that) I find it to be culturally sensitive and relevant providing an excellent example of how to incorporate these aspects in an academic unit.
