Lesson Plan: For Teachers: A Hockey Collage
Direct students to the topic The Spirit of Hockey on the CBC Digital Archives website. Have them browse the clip titles and read the support material. Then ask students to brainstorm themes they think are part of the site. Record their responses.
Outline the Opportunity
Have students work in pairs to choose one of the themes posted. They will create a collage illustrating this theme. Students should begin their research with the clip "The language of hockey", and then examine between one and three other clips to gather ideas for their collage. Students should take notes as they work. Students cut items from print materials (such as old magazines or newspapers) to create their collage. Students should title and write an explanatory paragraph about their collage.
Revisit and Reflect
Students present their collages to the class and explain the ideas behind their collage and its design.
Students can choose their favourite collage and write a paragraph explaining why it appeals to them.
