UNHCR Teachers' Toolkit in German for 9 to 12 year olds

This education package contains the German version of the teaching materials on UNHCR's Teachers' Toolkit web pages.

Children are encouraged to think of their own experiences and link them to topics being addressed. They are also encouraged to work in pairs or groups and to listen and take in other people’s perspectives.

Any video and audio materials used for this age group should tell stories of a refugee child of the same age as the pupils through discussion of upbeat, familiar and relevant topics such as why people might leave their home, their new home-life, hobbies, toys, new school life and future dreams..
