Requirements

Do any four of the following requirements:

  1. Tell about or show four or more items that were invented by Aboriginal people and which we still use today.
  2. Make a list of Aboriginal words that are used as names of places, such as provinces and territories, cities, towns, parks, roads and waterways. Discover the Aboriginal meaning of these words.
  3. Learn about some of the Aboriginal people who first lived in your area. Using historical information and designs, make a model or display that shows their dwellings, how they traveled, their writing and art forms, and objects used for daily living.
  4. Learn an Aboriginal game, song, dance or story and share it with your six or pack.
  5. Tell how an Aboriginal people's way of life is affected by the part of the country in which they live.
  6. Discover and tell how Aboriginal people helped early explorers and pioneers to settle in Canada.
  7. If possible, arrange to visit with an Aboriginal person. Find out how that person's life is similar to or different from how Aboriginal people lived long ago.
