Explore the Alberta Legislature
Here are some activities for students to explore the Alberta Legislature while learning safely at home.
Resources are applicable to all grade levels and have direct connections to the Alberta Social Studies program. Many of the resources align particularly well with grade 6 and grade 9 Social Studies curriculum.
You can find the resources at assembly.ab.ca or on our social media @LegAssemblyofAB.
Stay tuned for pre-recorded guided tours of the Legislature building, coming soon!

My Hero Is You Storybook
A new storybook that aims to help children understand and come to terms with COVID-19 has been produced by a collaboration of more than 50 organizations working in the humanitarian sector, including the World Health Organization, the United Nations Children’s Fund, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and Save the Children.
“My Hero is You” is a book written for children around the world (primarily aged 6-11 years old) affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. “My Hero is You” should be read by a parent, caregiver or teacher alongside a child or a small group of children. It is not encouraged for children to read this book independently without the support of a parent, caregiver or teacher.
