British Council IDL Resources and Competition

The British Council have a range of education resources which may be useful sources of ideas for interdisciplinary learning linked to sustainable and international education. Here is a link to the resource section of their website.

Click here to take a look at the Rivers of the World resource pack. It has learning experiences for various age groups linked to bundles of social subject, science, art & design and maths learning. These include field work skills to support taking learning out of the classroom.

You may have time to use any comparative river study work already done with your primary 5 & 6 pupils in this competition run by the British Council – see details below:
