Tell students that they will continue to work with their groups to investigate what they can find out about the roles and activities of the Famous 5. They will also be looking for evidence of women's lifestyles through learning about the Famous 5. Refer each group to photographs and Readings from The Famous 5 website, or print off samples from these pages. Many of the sources reflect women's lifestyles and issues in the early 1900s, and expand on the various roles and involvements of the Famous 5. Suggestions are provided in the list of student resources.

Have students examine the photographs and other sources on information.


Work with the class to complete the following sentence stems:

  • I found out that Emily Murphy's activities and roles included. . .

  • I found out that Henrietta Muir Edwards' activities and roles included. . .

  • I found out that Louise McKinney's activities and roles included. . .

  • I found out that Irene Parlby's activities and roles included. . .

  • I found out that Nellie McClung's activities and roles included. . .

Then have students look for evidence of women's lifestyles in the early 1900s. Have them create a word bank that describes different aspects of women's lifestyles in the early 1900s. Students can be asked to create their word banks on poster paper, and illustrate them.

Students may also be guided through the information in the Analyzing a photograph student resource to help them examine the photographs.
