Poster Challenge

The Poster Challenge invites grade 5 students to create posters that tell us what they value about the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. At a courthouse near you, staff will choose their favourite posters to send to the OJEN head office, where we will select one that will hang in each regional courthouse for the coming year.

When you register your class for the Poster Challenge, you will receive a downloadable lesson plan. This resource will help you introduce or revisit the Charter in your classroom. The Poster Challenge meets Grade 5 Ontario curriculum expectations in Social Studies in a fun and effective way.
