Lesson 1 » Activity 2
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.
