The FNESC/FNSA Science First Peoples Teacher Resource Guides for Grades 5-9 and Secondary provide educators with resources to support the integration of the rich body of First Peoples (unappropriated) knowledge and perspectives into Science, and other curricular areas.
The guides include background information on how First Peoples’ perspectives in science can be recognized and included in science inquiry. They also offer curriculum planning suggestions, and provide examples of fully developed multi-grade thematic units that correspond with the BC curriculum.
It is recognized that the wealth of First Peoples’ science knowledge is held by communities. The guide can be used in conjunction with locally-based resources that are developed by or in collaboration with, local communities.
