In our current unit of study, we are learning about Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. Wild berries grow in abundance in the north and blueberries make delicious jam that can be enjoyed with traditional bannock like we made during our last unit. We crushed the blueberries, added sugar and pectin, stirred for three minutes and let it sit for 30 minutes before putting it in our bottles. A very easy and delicious recipe to make “La confiture aux bleuets”!
We shopped until we dropped!
Board game testing day!
Some interesting discussions as we fine tune the rules!
Grade six spent a very interesting and informative few hours with Lianne Harris this morning. She brought lots of Aboriginal artefacts for us to look at and explained their significance in the life of the people who used them. Many of the artefacts belonged to Lianne’s own family which brought a new perspective to the stories she told about everyday life for Aboriginal people.
