We have a range of diverse downloads for you to use in the classroom or group setting, and which will help you challenge established and conventional thought. Many of them originated through projects we’ve run in the past and are still relevant and useful resources.
Global Schools Resources
The EU-funded Global Schools project (find out more about the project here) created two simple yet effective resources on what happens to plastic and on growing tomatoes:
Two larger teacher resources also came out of the project to aid thinking about global learning within schools:
Philosophy for Global Learning has been created as a flexible and practical resource for teachers of all levels of experience. It is for those who want to teach global awareness to children through the structure of Philosophy for Children. Philosophy for Global Learning is aimed for use with children in Key Stage 2 but some parts can be used with younger children.
Divided into three sections, with an introduction, P4C Session and resources, much of the P4C session section has split pages. So if you download the resource, cut pages from 17 to 56 into three so you can pick and choose the activities and stimulus you wish to use.
We would also like to credit Helen Griffin with the 'Concept Target: real and not real' activity on page 67-68, 'Concept Building: big ideas' on page 71 and 'Concept Play: How you interpret a word' on page 72. Thank you for allowing us to use them.
Who in the World Am I is a resource pack for teachers and children who want to actively explore their own identity from the personal right through to being part of a family, a community, a country and becoming a global citizen. The activities develop progressively through the global learning themes of valuing diversity and skills of self-awareness and reflection.
