Happy birthday, Queen Victoria! In parts of Canada, the Monday before May 25 is still celebrated to honor this famous queen. Join in the Maypole dancing.
Every year, people in Victoria, British Columbia, celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday with Maypole dancing in front of the grand Parliament building. Why do hundreds of children participate in this event? Why is it not celebrated in Quebec? Have students find out more about this unique holiday! Here are a few ideas of ways to show the festivities in honor of Queen Victoria, whose British reign ended more than a century ago. Students create a unique 3-D project!
Students make a triarama. Cut a recycled file folder into a large square with Crayola® Scissors. Fold it in half, point to point. Open and fold it in half the other way. Open the fold. Cut along one of these folds from a corner to the center. Slide one flap under the other to see how your triarama will stand up and then lay it flat.
Students draw the festive scene. Sketch the Parliament building and Canadian flag with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils. If you change your mind, or to add highlights like windows, just erase! Decorate just one of the flaps made by your cut. Color your drawing with Crayola Twistables.
Students assemble their triarama. Overlap the two flaps with the decorated one on top. Hold them in place with Crayola School Glue. Color and then curl a leftover piece of file folder into a Maypole. Cut short fringe at one end and glue it to your triarama.
Ask students to measure material into pre-determined lengths and cut out using Crayola Scissors. Using Crayola Markers, students color their streamers and glue them to the Maypole. Allow glue to dry overnight. Then the dancing can begin!
