The Gaels

Within the last five years, there has been a great effort to connect students to the founding cultures of Nova Scotia through the new streamlined curriculum. Baile nan Gàidheal | Highland Village, a part of the Nova Scotia Museum, recognizes the needs of teachers to have ready-made cultural resources that can be used in the classroom. We have created documents to help teachers introduce Gaelic in their classrooms using the following Gaelic documents. We draw on Nova Scotia Gaelic idioms and themes found throughout the culture. Activities, lessons-plans and resource websites will provide students a chance to learn about the rich history of the Gael in Nova Scotia while engaging children in hands-on, interactive and fun cultural experiences
