Aboriginal Culture Kits available for loan

Aboriginal Culture kits are now available for loan from the DRC. These kits are suitable for primary grades and two of the kits contain books for the French Immersion classes. The kits are meant to be integrated into an area of study rather than to be used on its own as a stand alone unit. By presenting the materials to the children, you can explore ways to use the kits together.
Here are the titles of the Aboriginal themes kits:
Environment/Aboriginal Culture
Family/Community/Aboriginal Culture
Raven/Aboriginal Culture
Eagle/Aboriginal Culture (French books included)
French Aboriginal Culture
Animal/Aboriginal Culture
Alphabet/Aboriginal Culture
