Looking for a new and exciting way to connect kids with Parliament?
Sign your class up for The Parliamentary Play and Tour program, an interactive session that includes a guided tour of the parliament buildings and a travelling historical play on the grounds.
My Place in Politics is an interactive, child-friendly play that whisks audiences back in time, to 1947. They will meet suffragists, students, and the participants of the Chocolate Bar strike, who will teach them about different ways that Canadians have advocated for change in the past. Following the play, the group will enter the buildings for a guided tour that focuses on how change is made at the Parliament Buildings today.
This program has been designed with the Grade 5 and 6 social studies curricula in mind, but is fun for children of all ages. The play focuses on participation and representation in Canada's systems of government and how groups developed a plan of action to address issues like discrimination, inequality, and the fight for human rights. It can also be modified to fit the Grade 10 Social Studies Curriculum.
