This multi-disciplinary curriculum explores the importance of one natural resource, the cedar tree, in the lives of the Nootka, a Pacific Northwest First Nation. Through inquiry-based discussion, science experiments, language arts, and drawing, Third and Fourth grade students learn how this amazing natural resource was (and often still is) used in everything from tools and clothing to food and shelter.
