Seven Teachings Drama Circle | Paper
This drama circle teaches students the seven grandfather teachings of the Indigenous People in Canada: humility, courage, love, honesty, truth, wisdom, and respect as taught by the wolf, bear, eagle, sabe, turtle, beaver, and bison.
This engaging activity includes:
- directions on how to run a drama circle.
- a teacher quick guide.
- a set of 40 cards (in colour and ink-saving).
- a set of discussion questions to do after the drama activity.
This activity supports:
- any lesson about the culture of Indigenous People in Canada.
It has been classroom tested with students in grades four and five with success, but it does deal with mature themes and topics related to Residential Schools, so be sure you know your students well to prepare them for the seriousness of the conversation.
The cards contain a reading level for Grade 4+, so be sure you know your students well. Cards contain different amounts of text, so you can differentiate for your students.
Ninja Note: This product requires the buyer to download the PDF, print the cards, and cut them apart before beginning the activity.
