Have students work in small groups. Introduce the students to the Famous 5 and women's and equality by providing them with the Achievements pages and samples from the Readings below. Ask each group to use these sources to identify issues relating to the concept of equality and rights. Students can also be asked to consider how rights of children and youth might have been an issue during the time period in which the Famous 5 lived. Ask each group to use the Setting the Stage student resource to identify these issues. Students can be asked to record information and any illustrations they found using the storyboard format of this student resource.

Ask students to think about the kinds of things that can be learned from historical sources such as political cartoons, posters and handbills dealing with controversial issues. Have them add information on using different types of sources to their How I use sources student resource.

Ask students to consider what they might like to find out about the fight for equal rights in the context of Canadian history as well as in current contexts. Work with the students to create a list of inquiry questions. Students can use the For my inquiry student resource below to record their questions.
