Just Because We're Small Doesn't Mean We Can't Stand Tall: A Child and Youth Rights Movement

In this article, the authors share their research on a curriculum for social

justice, truth, and then reconciliation as put forth by the First Nations Child and

Family Caring Society (Caring Society). The Caring Society is a non-profit

and creates social justice educational materials for Canadian learners. The authors

provide an overview of the Caring Society campaigns and educational research. More

Early Childhood

People of all ages, including children, can participate in meaningful reconciliation activities by learning about reconciliation and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action, learning about the history of Canada from a variety of viewpoints, and learning about fun and engaging ways to get involved. Resources and activities for Early Childhood learners may include those that teach about Indigenous history and culture, expand on concepts like justice and fairness, and encourage asking questions.
