Who am I? Identity

Level
Tags
 

A structured series of lesson plans drawing together the best practice, developed at SL, for preparing a KS2 class to meet.

The purpose of The Linking Network Identity Pack is to develop discussion on the concepts of identity, diversity, uniqueness and belonging by exploring TLN’s four key questions – Who am I? Who are we? Where do we live? and How do we all live together? These activities are not designed for linking days, however many are ideal for use in exchange of identity work.

Using Philosophy for Children this activity engages students together in a self-critical (reflective) practice of asking questions, testing ideas and arriving at conclusions.
