Taking a ‘learning journey’ outside of the classroom can serve as a powerful stimulus to engage children with complex issues.
This publication shares work from Birmingham primary schools, which participated in the Botanical Journey project at the city’s Botanical Gardens. The project took children on a learning journey where they played the part of Victorian plant hunters – both through role play and in ‘real time’ – and debated the issues involved relating to who ‘owns’ natural resources.
This is a great little resource with lots of useful ideas and insights for exploring global issues through theatre in education, drama, debate and role play.
