Early Indigenous People's Use of Rocks and Minerals Resource Unit

MineralsEd is excited to be debuting our newest Resource Unit Early Indigenous Uses of Rocks and Minerals. This is composed of six stations that explore different methods of how early Indigenous people utilized rocks and minerals. Practice flaking your own stone tools, painting with mineral pigments, and soap carving! 

Developed as an inquiry-based student challenge to accompany the B.C. Intermediate-level curriculum, this resource is multi-disciplinary, enabling teachers to incorporate core and curricular competencies from Science, Social Studies, English Language Arts, Arts Education, and Applied Design, Skills and Technologies (ADST).

Teachers who participate in this Resource Unit will receive a kit of support matierals valued at over $300, including a binder with information and classroom activities, supplementary materials, and a rock and mineral kit with samples of obsidian, flint, chert, malachite, and more!

Written and presented by MineralsEd Partner-Teacher Dale Maingot.
