INTRODUCING INDIGENOUS ISSUES IN GRADE 9 SCIENCE by KIRA JANISSE, submitted by Leila Knetsch

observations and inferences ladder

This guided inquiry activity is structured to allow students the freedom of their own pacing while practising observations and collaborating to find the cause of Minamata Disease in Japan, and then exploring how it has affected a Canadian Indigenous population.   Students will become engaged with chemistry and ecology, and their new knowledge will serve as a reference to which they can relate further learning in the chemistry unit.

This is a grade 9 science resource (Chemistry unit) but it could be used in Grade 11 U Chemistry (Solutions unit) since there are lots of curriculum expectations around water and Chemistry teachers will be around that point right now (Unit 4).
