Physical Education : First Nations, Métis & Inuit Content & Perspectives Integration : The Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools created lesson suggestions incorporating traditional aboriginal dance, music and games for Grade 1-5 and Grade 6-8 .  “You will not find lesson plans here, but you will be pointed in a direction from which you may be able to find your own resources and your own ideas for FNMI content. …. Pick and choose activities from anywhere, especially those that are suitable for you and your students. These are very open-ended activities and can be used across grade levels.” (Primary, Intermediate, Middle School)

The introduction provides information on protocol for the teaching and learning of traditional dances.  There is an expectation that students have some background in FNMI traditional rhythms and music prior to learning the dances. (Primary, Intermediate, Middle School)
