Lesson Plan

Bicentennial Lesson Plan

Stewarding Maine's Natural Resources

Grade Level: 3-5 Content Area: Science & Engineering, Social Studies
This lesson plan will introduce elementary-grade students to the concepts and importance of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and Indigenous Knowledge (IK), taught and understood through oral history to generations of Wabanaki peoples. Through learning about important figures in the region’s history – including Molly Ockett (Pigwacket, ca. 1740-1816) and David Moses Bridges (Passamaquoddy, 1962-2017) – as well as the rivers, forests, animals, and coastline that define the ecology of the region, students will engage in discussions about how humans can be stewards of the local ecosystem and how non-Native Maine citizens can listen to, learn from, and amplify the voices of Wabanaki neighbors to assist in the future of a sustainable environment.
