As a citizen of a community, we all have rights and responsibilities. In this program, students will join our hosts Kirstie and Sean to learn how and why communities make and enforce laws. The program reveals how rules are linked to safety and designed to support fairness, and explains why there must be consequences for breaking community rules. Students will also discover how rules in a classroom and at home are just as important as the rules in a town or city. Students also hear from the delightful coast Tsminshian First Nations Elder and Educator, Shannon Thunderbird who tells children of the Seven Sacred Teachings - love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth. Shannon shares her wonderful storytelling ability in sharing with children how each of these rules from our First Nations culture can help us be better people.
Includes: DVD, resource guide with student worksheets in PDF format.
