Learning about poverty can be emotionally challenging for some students. There are also a lot of interconnected issues to try and process. This activity provides students with an opportunity to reflect back on what they learnt over the day, how they feel about it, what questions they still have, and to consider what actions they could take to bring change.
It is recommended that this activity be the final one. It would be suitable whether students have only completed the Lucy’s Story activity or if they have undertaken a combination/all of the education activities. This activity will help support students’ thinking and written communication skills, and their understanding of civic values and responsibility in taking action. This activity would particularly suit students in middle and upper primary.
