First Nations Cree Students Performing for Stephen Central P.S.
A Digital Human Library School Presentation

The grade 2/3 class has been using Skype (free video calling software) to connect with Cree students at Chief Poundmaker School on Poundmaker Native Reserve in Cutknife, Saskatchewan.  As part of our social studies curriculum, the students have been learning about First Nations people in Canada.  In order to compliment these curriculum expectations, my students and I have been working with one of the participants in my Digital Human Library to bring the field trip experience into the classroom!

The culminating activity for our unit will be a celebration of traditional Cree songs and dances which will be performed via Skype by students in all grades at Chief Poundmaker School.  Elders from the Poundmaker Native Reserve Community will also be participating in this performance.

Our class would like to extend an invitation to all students and family members in Huron County to attend this performance which will take place at Stephen Central P.S. in the gym, on Thursday, November 17th beginning at 11:30AM.  Come and experience the Digital Human Library!
