IN THIS PRESENT TIME OF COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ON OUTSIDE VISITORS TO SCHOOL SITES, WE HAVE MOVED OUR PRESENTATION TO A GOOGLE SLIDE DECK FORMAT FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR.

Although we cannot visit in person, we have expanded our 'in person' slide presentation to include voiceovers, videos, and additional photos to create a virtual classroom visit... almost as though we are right there with you. The information presented is suitable for primary up to high school and will assist teachers in meeting curriculum outcome requirements related to Nova Scotia's Gaelic culture.

 

During viewing, students will be given the opportunity to...

  • learn some Gaelic phrases
  • view videos of weaving, fiddling, dancing, and milling cloth 
  • learn a milling song 
  • dance a few steps
  • see how a great kilt is worn
  • listen to fiddle tunes
  • hear a story told in Gaelic
  • ...and more!
Email us and on your preferred date a Google slide deck "Gaelic Culture in Nova Scotia" will be shared with you for use during your school hours...
For the $30 sharing fee, teachers will be given 5 hours of access  to the slide deck, allowing them to view portions of the presentation throughout the day, replay videos, pause for discussions, and so on. When we send the presentation link, we will also provide an invoice with our business number to enable schools to either etransfer or mail payment and 3 activity/colouring pages to copy and use with the class. Upon completion of viewing, teachers and students are also welcome to email Abby and Ella with follow-up questions or comments!

We are hopeful this format will be able to be used in classrooms we have already visited over the years, but also in classrooms we were unable to meet with due to distance, time, or quarantining issues. We look forward to getting your feedback and hearing from students!
