This pack has been developed to mark the centenary of the African
National Congress (ANC), Africa's oldest liberation movement, and designed to provide a range of potential
uses in schools.
The activities in this pack are mainly appropriate for
key stages 2, 3 and 4. They are designed to be used flexibly in the
subject areas suggested or integrated into other appropriate subject
areas. Teachers can choose as many or as few activities as they wish.
These might include one-off sessions, or longer in-depth units of work.
The activities and information provided can easily be adapted according
to the classroom situation, for example ages of pupils, number of
sessions available and curriculum emphasis.

How to use
The activities in the pack are separated into four lessons, which include activities, photos, links and biographies:
There is a lesson plan for each lesson providing objectives, outcomes
and guidance on using the resources provided. The lessons are designed
to tell the story of apartheid and its leaders, to appeal to young
people and to illustrate the success of the ANC.
The new government and the progress it is making would not have been
possible without the resistance movement in South Africa and
international support for the abolition of apartheid. It will take a
long time to recover from that but young people in a democratic South
Africa can be more hopeful now.
In addition there is some useful background information provided. We
hope you find these resources helpful and that they assist you to
provide positive, fun and robust learning experiences for your pupils.
