How they work
Our lesson ideas are designed to require little effort to set up and run. They are intended to inspire teachers to deliver the curriculum in thought provoking ways that encourage students of all ages to engage with the concepts of living and working in tomorrow’s world.
Our lesson ideas will help you set out on a learning adventure with your students. We cannot predict what you will discover but we look forward to you joining us on your journey.
All the lesson ideas are flexible and can be adapted by you to suit your needs. They are not intended to act as formal lesson plans.
Make sure you apply for an Eco-Schools award to recognise the achievements of your students and the school.
Can't find what you're looking for? We have developed some more teaching resources based around global citizenship and community cohesion in partnership with the Love Where You Live campaign. Visit the campaigns area to find out more.
All of our lesson ideas have been designed to help with specific curriculum areas. To help illustrate this, we've put together some curriculum grids to show you how these lessons work with the national curriculum and with subject areas.
