Through Mala's Eyes

Mala's Eyes CoverIndian and Northern Affairs Canada has developed a teaching aid to help students to learn more about Inuit culture.  Below is the introduction from their website and offers insight into what can be expected upon visiting the site. We encourage you to visit INAC's website and download this great resource.

 

This series of lesson plans, built around the first-person narrative of a 12-year-old Inuk boy, will help you and your students appreciate life in the Inuit community of Salluit, in the northern part of Nunavik, Northern Quebec. Although designed for students from 9 to 12 years of age, some of the lesson plans and strategies in this unit can be adapted for other grade levels. Suggested activities and lists of research resources offer exciting and engaging opportunities to learn more about the history, customs and traditions of Inuit in Canada.
