In Social Studies this past week, we were lucky to have some Inuit artifacts from the Royal Alberta Museum in our classroom. We learned about many interesting aspects of Inuit culture, and were able to use a variety of items including an ulu (multipurpose knife), traditional pulling game, kimiik, art, and a soapstone carving. The students in 2B were also researching the weather in Iqaluit, Meteghan, Saskatoon, and Spruce Grove, and found some notable similarities and differences in their climates. We’re lucky to learn about such an interesting group of people in grade two! You can watch the video above to hear some excellent news reporting by 2B on these fascinating artifacts, and watch the video below to hear Inuit throat singing.
