NAECcanoe building project


Historic and futurist water craft, a video and audio documentary about community members, and geocaching at the Gould Lake Outdoor Education Centre are just a few of the exceptional projects that will be celebrated by the Limestone Learning Foundation (LLF) at its spring grant allocations. "Limestone Learning Foundation grants are helping students, teachers and parents go beyond what is available in the classroom," explains Chair Bruce Cowle. "There are some extremely exciting projects that really offer students a unique, and new experience, such as the aboriginal canoe building project at North Addington Education Centre," says Cowle. This project involves both elementary and secondary technology students researching the history of transportation in the area, and learning about the everyday life of various peoples during the late 19th Century, including First Nations people, Metis, and Europeans. Students will construct a heritage canoe, complete with artwork that reflects First Nations history found in the rock paintings at Bon Echo Provincial Park. Students will use a variety of media forms to document this history project, and they will produce a variety of media texts to support their learning experiences, including paddling the canoe.
