S1 came to the LRC to investigate the life of Nelson Mandela. Mrs Letham showed the class his picture and told them three facts about him:
- his name
- he was in prison for 27 years
- he was President of South Afric
The class were then asked to think of questions that they would like answered.
While discussing ideas with their groups, one pupil asked about a Scottish connection – so we showed them Nelson Mandela Place in Glasgow on Google Maps.
That street was specifically chosen to receive his name – wonder if you know why?
