Welcome to Physical and Health Education
HOW TO APPROACH ABORIGINAL INFUSION IN THE PHYSICAL AND HEALTH EDUCATION
Ideally, incorporating Aboriginal education in PHE will require teaching Aboriginal content explicitly, as well as incorporating the principles of Aboriginal learning into our classes with a greater regard to subtle and seamless implicit unit and lesson design.
In addition to the General Tips outlined on our resource main page (we strongly recommend reading that first), the role of Physical and Health Education incorporating Principles of First Nations teaching focuses on:
Recognizing traditional methods of Aboriginal sport and games in developing skills, knowledge, and understanding the importance of active living and health in our lives.
Developing a balance between physical, intellectual, mental, and social health through the principles of First Nations Practices (Medicine Wheel).
Below you will find links to Grade Specific Guides that align Course Competency and Content with suggested strategies.
