With a focus on children’s rights, the pack covers four topics: water, food and farming, houses and homes and toys and play. By exploring how these key needs are met in Malawi, pupils will learn more about themselves and their own communities.
A variety of active learning methods support pupils in reflecting on their perceptions of Malawi and thinking about how their attitudes and opinions are challenged as they learn. The accompanying CD ROM has a supporting image bank of photos of Malawi.
While the pack focuses on Malawi, many of the activities can be easily adapted for use with another country as a focus with an alternative collection of photos. With its strong focus on Global Citizenship, any schools working at curriculum level with a partner school will find this a useful and stimulating resource.
