Métis Peoples of Canada are famous leaders, artists, athletes, activists and much more! Researching real people helps students to get a more concrete and compassionate understanding of the culture, lives and diverse perspectives of different people. Students will research a person and then create a biography poster highlighting their accomplishments.
These posters can be printed out, laminated, and hung around the room as a visual reminder of notable people from the Metis Nation. Students can also present their posters to their classmates, sharing their knowledge about their person, thus combining research, writing and public speaking skills into one powerful assignment.
