Tundra Books is pleased to work with teachers who are using our books
in their classrooms and who are supporting this use with the suggested activities
which we post on our site.
These activities help to teach children about themes as diverse as slavery, religion, creative
writing, and world conservation. And most importantly, they encourage children to share ideas and
opinions, and to stretch their imagination.
Free use by others is encouraged. Please provide the appropriate copyright credit.
Dewey Divas and Dudes: Dewey Divas and Dudes are a group of Canadian Publishing reps who regularly give book talks to libraries, spreading their enthusiasm for the best books of the season. Here are Anne Steven’s Children's Selections. For links to their latest book picks for both adult and kids books, plus ongoing book recommendations, please visit their blog.
Also available from Tundra Books is The Native Dwellings Teacher's Kit.
The materials in this teacher resource kit are designed to
complement the six books in Bonnie Shemie's series:
Many of the activities can be used with all of the books, while others are
specific to one title. The areas covered include music, drama, art, literature,
science, and social studies.
The kit is available in binder-format for $13.95 CAN/US
and includes photocopy masters
Here's a small sample:
Social Studies activities: "Jeopardy" - using a list of newly acquired vocabulary,
form questions relating these words. Print the vocabulary on cards. Print
the questions on another set of cards. Match them up.
Science activities: The Native peoples respected their land. Compare
and contrast their attitude to nature with attitudes of today. Study endangered
animals, conservation of soil and water, the dangers to the environment
due to progress (clear-cutting of forests, over fishing etc.).
