This photo quiz uses striking images and a video to encourage learners to reflect on what they remember of recent news stories and events. Not all is as it seems, as learners consider whether a statement is true or false before seeing the image. They then form their opinion and discuss the topics relating to conflict, natural disasters, emergencies and humanitarianism.

Learning objectives

Learners will:

  • review news events from the past year
  • consider whether statements are true or not
  • form their opinion on different topics
  • discuss and debate humanitarian issues.

Consider and provide your opinion on the topic.

3. Discussion round
