Focus on research skills with this low-prep project that teaches reading/creating maps, reading photographs and diagrams, notetaking and synthesizing information to research sacred plants of the Indigenous People in Canada used for healing, medicine and in their special ceremonies such as smudging and prayers.
Specific instructions are included to teach each of the skills.
This no prep package includes:
complete teacher lesson plan including possible modifications for differentiation.
maps showing locations the plants grow in Canada.
photographs of all the plants.
a diagram of the medicine wheel.
articles about each of the four sacred plants: sage, sweetgrass, Red Cedar and tobacco.
all of the research information pages also come in a digital version to help reduce printing.
a variety of student templates for differentiated options.
student instructions for each skill and task.
student examples in different formats.
all the research materials you need (so you don't need to look for anything).
Everything you need for students to create a final project is included except for empty legal size file folders (or poster board in you prefer) for the presentation.
You can use your own paper or print our templates.
Some of the students information cards are better if printed in colour, but instructions are included for a workaround if colour printing is not an option for you.
