How Names Were Given

The teacher shared with the class an Okanagan First Nation story called, “How Names Were Given”.  Students were then asked to consider how their names were chosen. The children were encouraged to find out the story behind their name(s) from their parents. The stories behind the students’ names were then compiled into a class book called The Story of Our Names.
