Our free teaching guide covers the range of teaching resources and workshops we offer for primary and secondary teachers. The guide will help children and young people (aged 5 – 19) learn about topics related to the British Red Cross' work.

And we've also produced a free poster for primary schools to display in their classrooms with 17 inspiring teaching ideas from the Red Cross.

What's in the guide?

1. Our most popular resources on:

  • humanitarianism and the Red Cross
  • conflict and its consequences
  • disasters and emergencies
  • first aid
  • refugees and migration

2. Testimonials from teachers and students who've used our resources.

3. Information about workshops we offer in areas where young people are at higher risk of experiencing a crisis.

4. Fundraising and volunteering ideas for young people to support the Red Cross.

What's on the poster?

  • 17 engaging ideas for primary school lessons that all relate to the work of the Red Cross.
  • From learning how to dial 999 to remembering World War One or empathising with refugees, there are lots of ideas to choose from.
  • A2 size so you can easily print and display the poster in your classroom.
