Action Aid - Refugee crisis resources
Liven up your literacy lessons with gripping stories and colourful activities that show what life is like for many child refugees.
Use these resources to build literacy and empathy, and to help your class to answer questions such as: How is life different for child refugees? And, if you were a refugee, what would you take with you?
'What can you see?' - a PowerPoint presentation
What do your class think is happening in these 'close-up' photos? How do their opinions change when they see the bigger picture?
'Hamam's story' - a short, real-life story
Hamam's story of escape from Iraq will bring to life the dangerous journey taken by many young refugees.
'What would you take?' - literacy, discussion and online activities
What choices do refugee children face when they leave home? After your class have finished the included worksheets, use our online twitter app to tell us what you'd take. Your bag is as big as a tweet!
