Harrison Jewson's insight:

This is a great game about decision making and ethics. It isn't explicit in its ethical principles but when teaching primary children being explicit isn't necessarily more useful anyway.

The scenarios it explores involve acting as the captain of an expedition and dealing with conflicts of interest that arise in various ways including resource scarcity or environmental protection.

Would definitely use some of the scenarios and perspectives as inspiration, but would only actually give the game to stage 3 students to do by themselves.

 

Would also be good to combine with readers theater like conscience alleys etc.

Primary Foundation – Year 6 | Australian Human Rights Commission

Primary Foundation – Year 6 | Australian Human Rights Commission | Teaching Ethics in a Primary Classroom | Scoop.it
Harrison Jewson's insight:

While Human rights isn't a KLA in the primary curriculum this website shows where good teaching and learning opportunities arise from the other KLA's even specifying indicators from the new syllabus. This one isn't about lesson plans but just about categorising areas where human rights would be very easily integrated into another indicator.

What Makes Me Me? : Series 1 Episode 4 What's Fair?

What Makes Me Me? : Series 1 Episode 4 What's Fair? | Teaching Ethics in a Primary Classroom | Scoop.it
What Makes Me Me? And Other Interesting Questions is an engaging series of short films voiced by Robert Webb, exploring everyday questions that children ask, and adults often struggle to answer.
Harrison Jewson's insight:

The what makes me me series is a really good introduction to fairly common ethics questions that is designed to be watched by children. Each episode covers a different area, however currently on Iview you can only see the most recent 2 episodes so you have to pay for them after that but they talk about really interesting topics like fairness and discrimination.

Harrison Jewson's insight:

Really good book for talking about discrimination and bullying based on appearance. It's especially good because it gives you the perspective of the bully and the victim so it's not just about sympathising with someone who is bullied but also showing that often bullying is about misunderstanding someone else not always actually disliking them. This relates to accidental bullying.

 

Also just good because its a great book and has heaps of content to work on as far as literacy and understanding goes. Read it.

Racism. No Way.: Anti-racism activities - Years 4-12

This website aims to tackle racism in schools in Australia, through providing teachers, school students, parents and governors with games, research and lesson ideas that explore the causes and effects of racism for practical use in the classroom.
Harrison Jewson's insight:

This website has a huge list of activities that can be arranged by subject area or age group which makes it great for secondary as well as primary. It includes outcomes and indicators for many of the lessons although it does use the old syllabus so some of the content would have to be changed to adapt it to be fully relevant.

Even if you don't use the lessons exactly its full of really good ideas.
