Bodies, Hearts, and Minds: Using the Past to Empower the Future
This toolkit uses historical sources to empower people aged 11-16 to take control of their wellbeing in the present, and to build better futures.
The associated activity guides for group leaders and teachers provide a brief overview of topics, prompts for discussion and useful information for each activity, and ‘take home’ messages.
The accompanying learning objectives and curriculum links help teachers in England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland to use the toolkit in planning and carrying out lessons on topics related to personal, social, and health education.
You can download the toolkit and all associated resources on this page. A limited number of print copies of the toolkit are also available. Please contact Tracey Loughran (email@example.com) for further information.
