During my mentorship, I had the opportunity to share information about Saskatchewan and Regina with Rola Tibshirani’s grade 5/6 class in Ottawa, Sk. They gave me a list of topics they were inquiring about, and I went from there. I made a PowerPoint and screen-shared it with them so they were able to see pictures and information on the slides. I learned so much about Saskatchewan that I didn’t even know before putting the slide together. The grade 5/6’s asked great questions, and a lot of the answers I didn’t know, so we tried to find the answers together. This just shows that teachers definitely do not know the answers to everything and it’s okay to say “I’m not too sure, but let’s find out together”. We are always learning from one another.
A few of the topics that Rola’s students were learning about were population, natural resources, political parties in power, celebrations, major attractions, major rivers, major lakes, and mountains. I researched information about Saskatchewan and Regina according to these topics and came up with this PowerPoint. Please feel free to use it if you find it helpful 🙂
