Senior Teacher Zone

Thank you for visiting the Sport and Recreation Edukit. We are sure that as educators you will find many useful and engaging lessons within the senior portion of the Edukit. The lessons are designed to meet the new social studies curriculum as developed by Alberta Learning. The senior lesson plans cover grade 10 through grade 12 and introduce students to traditional Aboriginal dance and the connection between dancing and identity. The North American Indigenous Games are the focus of multiple lesson plans as students will learn what traditional sports are involved in the games and why these games were created and how they are essential to the healthy development of Aboriginal youth today.

Each lesson plan provides a Teacher Information background section on Aboriginal history and culture. Many lesson plans include downloadable worksheets that can be printed off or transferred to transparencies. The lesson plans are all developed to allow students to be interactive as possible in the learning process. The title of each lesson reflects the learning objective, making it easy for you to sort through and choose what information you would like to share with your students. A Resources section includes a list of books and materials that you may want to use to increase your own understanding, to supplement lesson concepts and materials or for students to follow up on their own. Many of the resources are approved by Alberta Education. Where possible there is an ISBN and order information is included.
