This learning resource material is designed to provide teachers and students with an opportunity to further expand upon their experience of participating in the Refugee Camp in the Heart of the City exhibit. They also offer an introduction to refugee and displacement issues for those students unable to attend the exhibit. These educational resources are the result of a collaborative effort between the graduate school class (summer 2008) of Dr. Jan Stewart, Director of the Institute for War-Affected Children at Global College, University of Winnipeg and Médecins Sans Frontières/ Doctors Without Borders (MSF).
We hope these five lesson plans will encourage students to continue to learn and understand the challenges 42 million refugees and internally displaced people face worldwide.
We offer five lesson plans, which may be adapted by teachers to suit their classroom needs.
Lesson 1: Forced to Leave
Lesson 2: Shelter
Lesson 3: Food & Malnutrition
Lesson 4: Water & Sanitation
Lesson 5: Building Awareness
