K-12 Digital Resources: Are you an educator interested in accessing resources to help you get started or find some new ideas for land-based learning?
Meewasin, in partnership with Saskatoon Public Schools and Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools have developed a series of award-winning resources to help educators to achieve curriculum outcomes in an outdoor environment.

These materials will help you prepare for and engage your students in outdoor learning, and include:
- Getting Started (Setting up for Success & Excursion Checklist)
- An Interpretive Program Guide for the Meewasin Valley
- Grade-specific curriculum-linked lessons for K-12
- Quick Facts and more!
We are very proud to share that these resources have been recognized by RCE Saskatchewan with the Lyle Benko Future Generations Award!
*NEW* Grades 9 -12 – Indigenous Connections to the Northeast Swale
Meewasin recognizes and acknowledges that the land and the water in the Meewasin Valley is part of Treaty Six Territory and the original homeland of the Métis and traditional trade and hunting territories of the Dakota. Meewasin honors this as part of our reconciliation efforts and recognizes the immense knowledge that is held by the traditional caretakers of this land as we do our best to steward it alongside them.
Through thoughtful and planned work, Meewasin Valley Authority as an organization is integrating First Nation and Métis perspectives into conservation and education in the Meewasin Valley. Over the past year, Meewasin has worked with Saskatoon Public Schools and Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools to develop a set of resources for secondary-level educators that encourage a higher level of thinking under the umbrella of Indigenous Ways of Knowing and societal impact.
These new digital resources create curriculum connections to a section of content in the Meewasin App called “Indigenous Connections to the Northeast Swale” as well as physical interpretive panels located at this site. They also include links to a variety of other content and have been designed to encourage teachers and students to take part in land-based activities throughout the Meewasin Valley with a focus on Treaty Outcomes, Arts Education, Social Studies, History, Indigenous Studies, Environmental Science & Health Science.
