Perhaps the teacher was called away on an emergency and didn’t leave lesson plans or perhaps you have some extra time at the end of the day or perhaps you are covering a sick leave and would like to include some Indigenous education in your lesson plans. Here are 4 read alouds you can do with you class and some activities that go along with them. You don’t even have to have the books – the read alouds are on YouTube!
