What is Land-Based Learning?

May 25, 2017 | DEVELOP

The students of Waweyekisik Education Centre in Waterhen Lake, Saskatchewan completed a Canada 150 residency on 'Land-Based Learning.'

Land-based learning gets students out of their desks and into nature. The lessons are geared towards connecting First Nations students with the land through hands-on skills such as farming and gardening. Land-based learning is a stark contrast to a traditional classroom, and gives students an opportunity to explore non-traditional methods of learning. For some students, land-based learning is their primary path to academic success. 

Elders in the Waterhen Lake community offered their insight into the value and the process of land-based learning within their community. View what they have to say on our Vimeo channel.
