Pupils have taken part in a large number of activities focused on the different things they need to survive (food, water and shelter). They built a shelter and considered what it is like to be a refugee. Many of the activities have adopted Philosophy for Children and Critical Skills methodology. Activities have included both classroom based and outdoor sessions.
This case study is taken from: Developing the Global Dimension in the School Curriculum, DfES et al, 2005.
