Pioneer Politics (Grade 6: Social Studies)


Calgary's first mayoral race is the backdrop to this role playing and interactive political studies program. Students will learn about the civic process from election campaigns to the creation of by-laws. During the program, students will compare and contrast to see how a small frontier town council has grown and changed to tackle modern problems, and will gain an understanding of both municipal responsibilities and limitations.
