Everybody Needs a Rock by Byrd Taylor

A great way to build community is to share this book with your class, discuss the importance of rocks in First Nation Culture and then take a walk to find the perfect class rock or an individual rock each. Some teachers purchase bags of rocks . The rocks can be stored in a basket or container to represent class unity. For more information on rocks see pages 57-63 Keepers of the Earth

Two other books that fit the topic as well  are The Yesterday Stone by Peter Eyvindson and If You Find a Rock by Barbara Hirsch Lember
