Description

The Good Path: Ojibwe Learning and Activity Book for Kids is an excellent teaching resource about Ojibwe history and culture. Organized around the traditional values that form Ojibwe ways of thinking, living and being, the nine chapters take readers from the time of creation to the present day. The chapters discuss the Creator's vision of the earth, the Grandfathers, Grandmother Moon, the prophecies, the westward migration, the time of the fur trade, treaties and reservations, the time of the Sixth Fire, and the Seventh Generation. Numerous colour photographs, illustrations, and maps are effectively used throughout the text. At the end of each chapter, the author provides several suggested activities for students. Author Thomas Peacock, a member of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, is an associate professor of education at the University of Minnesota. Students and teachers will find the book is a valuable resource for social studies, history, and Native studies. Reading Level: 5.7
