3 Tasks to Learn about the Parliament Buildings

Students: you will be doing these 3 tasks when I give you laptops tomorrow. (If you’re reading this Wednesday night and feel like doing it now, go for it. You can help the others tomorrow.)

Task #1:

Click here and scroll through the photographs. What details do you notice? What questions do you have about what you see?

Task #2:

Start this virtual tour (not with a guide). Explore different floors and different rooms (hint: bottom left has different viewing tools). Click on circles to learn about what you’re looking at. (You’re never allowed to explore freely like this in this building (in person) so this is pretty cool!)

Task #3:

Do you know the official symbols of our province (such as our official bird)? Click here and read about them. Be ready to share with the class.

I hope to have the students set up on Teams (we’ll work on tech glitches beforehand) so that they are able to view the tour and interact with the guide by asking questions.
