KS2 PSHE Lesson Plan – Build Teamwork, Numeracy and Critical Thinking Skills while Learning about the Refugee Crisis

It’s difficult for children to comprehend the reality of a national crisis. But this activity from the Red Cross will help them to appreciate what’s really important for those forced to flee their homes.

Using a ‘needs and wants’ auction, you can encourage children to discuss how they might cope in a crisis and to distinguish between what’s essential to their survival and what is merely desirable.

The auction builds skills such as team working, numeracy and critical thinking. It is easy to adapt for different groups and will provide a perspective on how people across the world have their basic needs met, particularly in desperate situations.
