Stories Of Our Artifacts

Listen to our stories.  Coming to know the story behind some of the everyday pictures and artifacts from our families have made us realize how important it is to know this history.  If we do not come to know these stories, they will be forgotten and how will we be able to preserve our heritage? 

Teacher Planning

In partnership with Athabasca University Library, Galileo Educational Network has created teacher planning resources that provide an overview of how to conduct an inquiry study into this topic, tasks and activities for students, ties to local curricula, and assessment resources so that educators across Canada can maximize use of the new online resource.

Bringing Forward The Past

“Properly worried over, properly cared for and remembered, these things keep coming up,” erupting and interrupting of their own accord, asking for attention, needing something from me, it seems.” (Jardine – On the While of Things)

What Is An Artifact?

“Children are profoundly concrete, imaginal, playful, bodily, and substantive in their ways of knowing. Artifacts are concrete and fleshy and substantial. They allow the children to connect with something that has Earthly, bodily texture and tactility.
They are memorial, somehow. Memory is somehow already housed in such things, "incarnated," if you will." (see Gadamer 1989)

Looking At Each Other

Using the self portraits we have completed what story do they have to tell? Where have you come from and how are we now connected as a community at St. Edmund? Using your self portrait, complete the phrase, I am ____________ and I am from ______________. As a class we will write the beginning and ending of this story. Our self-portraits and statements will be compiled together to tell the story of our community.
