There has been lots of hands-on activity and technology up to this point. But the real benefit is to highlight a cultural connection. One example is making Inuit personal names more known to the students. After researching the names in their family, the names were put into the computer and printed off. A screen was prepared and the names were printed on t-shirts and sweatshirts. Each family member received a copy of all the personal names in their family. Students were able to see other families.
