The following three Grade 8/9 cross-curricular units have been developed by Yukon teachers and the Yukon First Nations Curriculum Working Group, to provide samples that integrate Yukon content and Yukon First Nations Ways of Knowing and Doing. We thank these Elders and Knowledge Keepers who collaborated on the development of the units, freely sharing their time, knowledge, wisdom, and ideas.

Activities and Events
In honour of the 150th anniversary of Yukons first maps, students from Elijah Smith, Selkirk, Golden Horn, and Whitehorse Elementary schools visited the Kwanlin Dun Centre to engage in artistic activities grounded in the history of the maps. From touring the map exhibit, listed to an oral retelling of how the maps can into existence, creating a map, and engaging in representations of First Nations artistic expressions, students embarked on a cultural and geographical journey .
For more information on the map please visit Heritage Yukon and search under resources, and then publications.
