This session will be the third of three opportunities for partner jurisdictions who built Math, Science and Social Studies Kits to support First Nations understanding and making curriculum connections, to add to the kits. In the building and sharing of the kits, jurisdictions were asked to commit to adding and building the materials that are found within each kit. Multiple opportunities to engage in writing with your colleagues are provided in hopes that everyone can attend at least one session.
Please bring anlong any resources you have and a laptop. All materials created will be shared out to participating jurisdictions.
