Resource Description

Turtle Island Voices is a levelled book series for grades 1 – 8 celebrating Aboriginal culture, heritage and life. Grades 1-6 consists of ten titles per grade: (three traditional stories, four modern stories, and three informational texts) and a comprehensive Teacher’s Guide. The titles cover a range of levels appropriate for the grade. This series offers all children, Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal, the opportunity to recognize the role and contributions of Aboriginal peoples in the life, culture, and heritage of Canada. It can be used to integrate Aboriginal content and perspectives into multiple classroom lessons. Stories and articles develop concepts of inter-connectedness, respect for life, and the quest for a better future. Log in to read the full review.
