École Sainte-Anne students travel to a 17th-century Indigenous village

Students at École Sainte-Anne in Spanish recently traveled through time and discovered the experiences of Canada’s first explorers when they visited 17th-century Aboriginal people.
Board communication director Paul de la Riva says in social studies, students in grades 4, 5, and 6 studied the Ojibway peoples and the early explorers.
He adds with this knowledge, they built an interactive trail to represent an Ojibway community and each student built a tipi.
De la Riva adds students had the opportunity to appreciate Indigenous culture and learn about various aspects of their lives such as sacred teachings, inventions, food, and customs.
