Students investigated and identified how art expressions can reflect diverse worldview
      -examined the history of the First Peoples of Canada’s Rock Art
      -used the symbolism within Rock art to create their own pictograph on rock.

Youtube Video: The Class viewed this you tube video for a interpretation from an Aboriginal perspective-Blackfoot of Alberta
1. What can you learn from viewing at ROCK-ART?
 Mode of transportation-horses-foot-indicates a time-line Animals-indicates geography Landscape-Canada’s Geography        -ex: crossings-warning-trail splits—similar to street signs Symbolism-meaning Storytelling-historical records Art-Expression 
Students should know the difference between a Petroglyph& Pictograph.
Petroglyphs - "are carved, pecked, chipped or abraded into stone. 
      Pictographs - "are painted onto stone and are much more fragile than petroglyphs.
