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.

About the Program

In our ‘All About Nellie’ program, students will use the artifacts and information in the exhibit as inspiration to 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.

Additional Information

Exploring the Park before or after a youth group program is NOT permitted. The Village is closed at this time.

Each program is designed for a maximum of 30 students due to space restrictions within the buildings. If you have additional students please call the education team to discuss if this accommodation can be made. The program fee includes 30 students and the adult supervisors within the required ratio. Teachers are included in the ratio. A fee will be charged for any additional students or adults. There is no charge for one-on-one aids. If paying for any additional adults and/or students, no refund will be granted if numbers change the day of the program.
