Year 2 learned about the lives of two significant activists today and compared how their lives were similar and different. The children acted out scenes from Rosa Park’s brave personal protest against the injustices of racial segregation in the United States in the mid-20th century. They then looked at how Emmeline Pankhurst was part of the suffrage movement fighting for women’s right to vote. The children were able to identify how these important women’s lives shared similarities but were also quite different. Well done year 2.
