The Our World Irish Aid Awards lesson plan 1, Partnership for the Goals, is now available for 3rd/4th class and 5th/6th class. This lesson has been designed to accompany our 2020-2021 Partnership for the Goals pupils’ magazine and will help to further your pupils’ understanding of the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development, how Irish Aid is working in partnership with other countries to achieve these goals, and lead pupils onto a global citizenship journey.
In 2021, we will release an additional 4 lesson plans for 3rd/4th and 5th/6th classes. These will help your class engage even further with Global Citizenship Education topics and offer more activities and opportunities for your pupils to create a piece for our 2nd and 3rd issues of the Global Goal Getters online magazine, by kids, for kids.
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. 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.
