The Magna Carta

Topical Activities

Topical activities are based on current news of interest, or seasonal events, and are published every alternate month.

August 2015: The Magna Carta

This Topical Activity offers some ways to help children learn about the Magna Carta. It has three elements: the story of the Magna Carta; how Quaker William Penn used it to defend himself in Court and in setting up a new country; and how it sets the scene today for thinking about the United Nations Charter for the Rights of the Child. There are activities here to be done over two or three sessions of children’s meeting.
