All About Nellie


Who was Nellie McClung? Most of us recognize her as a member of the Famous 5 and a key player in the 1929 “Persons Case”, but there is so much more to her than that. Visit the The Famous 5 Centre of Canadian women, a replica of McClung’s Calgary home, and discover the many facets of Nellie’s life and personality. Using the artifacts and information in the exhibit as inspiration, students will create a scrapbooking journal and make Nellie’s work as an author; teacher; activist; politician; wife and mother come alive. Students will leave with a newfound vision of Nellie McClung.
