It is all well and good to try and incorporate First Nations perspective into a specific lesson or even an entire unit but when almost 50% of our students are coming from a First Nations background we should really be incorporating First Nations perspective at ALL TIMES.
Based out of Manitoba, Native Reflections is an amazing education resource company that represents First Nations heritage and traditions from across North America! They have everything a teacher could ever need or want, from lesson plan books and work sheets to bulletin board cut-outs and classroom decor. If you are already spending time and money to create and/or order classroom resources from various companies, why not make sure that those resources are representative of your students?
