Video stories of three Syrian refugees now in Jordan, with extensive accompanying lesson material

This resource focuses on the experiences of Syrian refugees and will give your students an understanding of the war in Syria, the plight of people fleeing the conflict and the tools they need to take action. Students will study the background to the conflict in Syria looking at how it started and who is involved; they will learn what a refugee is and examine their own assumptions; and they will explore what it would be like to be refugee. We hope this will inspire your students to want to make a difference.

Real Voices is a series of three short interviews with Syrian refugees living in Jordan, in which they talk about their experiences having to leave home, their journey and life in a refugee camp. They were filmed by tve on behalf of the DEC Syria Appeal.

The activities in this resource support the teaching of the National Curriculum for KS3 Geography. Links can also be made to History, Art and Design, and Citizenship.

This resource was written for KS3, however it would also be appropriate for upper KS2.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
