Tell the students that they will be working with a small group to learn about the roles and lifestyles of one of the Famous 5. Introduce the Famous 5 as an important group of women who worked to improve lifestyles for Canadian women. Refer each group of students to the Profile on one of the Famous 5, or print off these pages. Ask each group to read the Profile to identify the different roles each of the Famous 5 had in their lives.


Each group can be asked to use the Setting the stage student resource to record sentences and illustrations that introduce what they know so far about the roles and activities of the Famous 5. Students can be asked to record their sentences and any illustrations to represent what they found out using the storyboard format of this student resource.


Ask students to think about the kinds of things that can be learned from photographs. Have them add information on using photographs as a source of information to their How I use sources student resource.


Ask students to consider what they might like to find out about women's roles and lifestyles from the past. Work with the students to create a list of inquiry questions. Students can use the For my inquiry student resource to record their questions.
