A Survival Pack for Future Citizens
Global Issues and Sustainable Development
This resource pack for teachers of children aged 7-11 explores needs and wants for survival through the study of food, homes, sustainable development and refugees. It benefits from the use of local and global case studies and examines the need for sustainable development now and in the future.
The global study draws on teacher experiences of visiting South Africa. The local study includes locations across Cumbria, including a session at the Grizedale Forest, which informed the design of the pack. The lesson plans and resources for each theme include lead in activities, the session at Grizedale and follow up activities.
This is a flexible pack that teachers can use to deliver a series of lessons or dip into for suggestions about a delivering a specific activity. A particular strength of the pack is the photographic database that brings the images from different localities to life in relation to the key themes.
The use of active learning methodologies and the cross-curricular focus of the resource enhance its practical usage in the primary classroom.
