Yesterday I had the opportunity to participate in a blanket exercise led by Audrey Degner at Pembina North Community School. This powerful interactive experience helps students to better understand the history of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. It fits perfectly with Social Studies outcomes in grades 5, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12. I would encourage anyone interested in the Blanket Exercise to talk to Audrey or to check out the Karios Canada website.
