Getting to Know Your Commonwealth
We have prepared a series of education resources to offer an introduction to the Commonwealth and to engage young people in the big issues facing Commonwealth countries. We use the Commonwealth as a vehicle to explore wider international issues: diversity, development and democracy. Whether you are a Commonwealth enthusiast or not, we hope that you will find pertinent material for your students, to enable them to think critically and creatively about the world and their place in it.
Thinking About Malaria
As part of the Me and My Net competition, we have a Malaria lesson plan available aimed to raise awareness of Malaria in the Commonwealth.
Jubilee Time Capsule Lesson Plans
One of the world's biggest collaborative history projects, the Jubilee Time Capsule is a unique RCS initiative designed to mark Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Stories and memories from all over the world will be added to the Capsule covering every day from the last sixty years. Together they will form a unique peoples' history of the Commonwealth to be presented as a gift to Her Majesty in 2012.
We've created some basic lesson plans to get pupils thinking about how they can get involved in the project.
