Taking Learning Outdoors – Potlotek

With the current Covid restrictions and a lot of our schools using their gymnasiums as extra teaching spaces, schools have had to find creative ways to ensure students are staying active. This month, we will be featuring all of the ways schools have been taking their learning outside. Not only are the students getting fresh air and exercise, but they are also having an opportunity to hear Mi’kmaw spoken on the land and take part in cultural activities as well.

Some of the students at Allan Lafford High School had the opportunity to skin a locally trapped Kopit with André Marshall. This was a cross curricular learning experience in Mi’kmaw Language, Science, and Biology.
