Science First Peoples: Teacher Resources Guide

About the Guide: includes background information regarding how First Peoples' perspectives in science can be recognized and included in science inquiry. It also offers curriculum planning suggestions, and provides examples of fully developed units that correspond with the Big Ideas and Learning Standards in the BC Provincial Science Curriculum for grades 5- 9. The resources focus on Grades Five to Nine, but can also be applied to other grade levels.​

This guide is intended in part to address the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, particularly the call to "integrate Indigenous knowledge and teaching methods into classrooms" (clause 62) and "build student capacity for intercultural understanding, empathy and mutual respect" (clause 63).​
