I'm from a beautiful community

We used George Ella Lyon's poem Where I'm From as a starting point for children telling stories about the Alderville First Nation. Children worked in small groups to list ideas on a theme they chose about the Alderville First Nation community, and used the ideas to create poems. Then students worked with aboriginal performance artists Tracy Bone, JC Campbell and Dave Mowat, to develop live performances to be shared with their community.
