Learning from Leaders Lesson Plan – Grade 4

Activity Introduction

To complement the Nelson Mandela in Cape Town Legacy Exhibition, a supportive education programme has been developed for primary and secondary school learners by the City of Cape Town in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Western Cape Government and Responsible Tourism Cape Town. This specific lesson plan consists of nine activities. Some are class activities, a few are individual activities, and others are to be done in pairs. Two activities focus on Cissie Gool and protest action on the Grand Parade; three are about Cheryl Carolus, leadership and bullying; two feature Archbishop Tutu and the 1989 March for Peace; one explores how Nelson Mandela was taught to be a leader; and one addresses leadership qualities.
