This session will explore story-telling in maker-pedagogy and the arts. We will look at tools and practices for honouring our own stories and the stories of our students, finding resonance in/with the land and place, and the importance of adult-led vulnerability in this work.

1. Pen & Paper
2. An object from nature that can fit in your hand (ex. rock, leaf, etc)
