Overview:

In this video from PBSLearningMedia, students explore Alaska Native culture and values using "First Fish," an 11-minute animated story from the PBS KIDS series MOLLY OF DENALI™. (Move the cursor over the video progress bar to locate the story at 01:00.) Before Molly catches her first fish, a childhood milestone that is as important today as it was in the past, she researches facts about salmon to help her. When Molly finally succeeds, she follows the tradition of honoring one's elders by offering her prized catch to Grandpa Nat. As students examine values, such as sharing with others and respecting elders, they learn social-emotional skills as well as the importance in Alaska Native culture of connecting to all living things.
