Exploring Inuit Culture Curriculum (EICC) is a multi-media unit of instruction designed to teach students in grades 4-6 about the Inuit, the native people of Arctic Canada, and Nunavut, the newest territory in Canada established in 1999. The content of EICC suports the subjects of Canadian Studies and native cultures, two topics found in many elementary level social studies curricula. EICC integrates math, language arts, science, technology and dramatic arts, fulfilling other required curriculum components and creating a comprehensive unit of study. Using a combination of authentic materials developed by the Inuit of Nunavut, Canada and lesson plans aligned to elementary curricula, students have the opportunity to explore the rich Inuit culture and unique Canadian Arctic from the perspective of its native people.

Exploring Inuit Culture Curriculum (EICC) includes: Teacher Resource Guide with 20 lesson plans, Isuma Inuit Studies Reader (2 copies), 5 Documentaries/Short Films on DVD and a music CD of traditional Inuit ajaja songs. Massachusetts, New York and Washington D.C. also receive a supplement aligning all 20 lesson plans with the curriculum requirements outlined by each Board of Education.
