Lesson Plans 2020 - 2021


The Our World Irish Aid Awards lesson plans are available for 3rd/4th or 5th/6th class.

Our lesson plans are designed to further your pupil’s understanding of the United Nation’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development, how Irish Aid is working in partnership with other countries to achieve these goals, and lead pupils on a global citizenship journey.

Lesson Plan 1 (Partnership for the Goals) has been designed to accompany our pupil’s magazine. Lesson Plans 2-4 delve deeper into Global Citizenship Education topics and offer even more engaging activities, interesting stories, and important information about the work of Irish Aid.

We’ve recently released Lesson Plans 2 and 3:

  • Lesson 2: Partnership for the Goals 
  • Lesson 3: Storytellers

Lesson 4 will be released this February!

All lesson plans this year are available in English and Irish and are now in editable, PowerPoint format for use in the classroom or at home. Lessons are also available in video format with narration to assist teachers or parents with facilitation. Before teaching our lessons, you may wish to read our Good Practice Guidelines (available on the 3rd/4th and 5th/6th class pages) which offer helpful tips on what to consider when discussing sensitive topics in the classroom.
