Living Together

With regular stories in the press about refugees and asylum seekers, migration is a major topic that affects many children around the world. This classroom resource supports you to introduce themes of belonging and identity, and questions around staying or leaving using dialogue-based learning. The aim is to help students explore the complex issues around migration and to understand better the experiences that displaced children face.

We look at a number of challenges faced by people thinking about migration. Why do people choose to leave their home? What would you take with you if you were in that situation?

The resource offers a real-world story as the basis for discussion but you are encouraged to look for your own examples perhaps from displaced children in your classroom or from information in the news.
