Free Discovery Education event features historians and reenactments
A 30-minute live streaming event celebrating the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta–first signed on June 15, 1215–will bring together historians and other experts to explore the iconic document’s impact on the rule of law. The event is free for schools.
Discovery Education will host the event, desinged for students in second grade and above, and will feature a dramatization of the events leading up to and surrounding the first Magna Carta being sealed, along with an examination of Magna Carta documents, and an exploration of its effect on human rights development in the subsequent centuries. Discovery Education is also encouraging schools to create their own Magna Carta for the 21st century.
The free event will take place on June 15 at 9:30 a.m. EST. An archived version will also be available online.
