Lesson 2 » Activity 2
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.
