Today we had a special guest, Mr. Delorme who was talking to us about the 7 Sacred Teachings. He focused on the bear which represents courage and the bison which represents respect. We talked about when kids need to have courage and respect. He also passed around parts of the bison that Aboriginal people used. It was really neat! Things like a tooth, horn, fur, bladder, hoof, etc and he told us how they used each of those items for a purpose.
Each class in our school will get to learn from Mr. Delorme and then we will all be doing a letter writing project with another school.

It's like cool that I got to feel the buffalo's fur because it feels kind of rough a little bit. -Jaden
