During December we will be sharing the lesson plans published by Highland Council’s Equalities Improvement Group and LGBTI+ sub-group to support the development of Equality and Diversity across the curriculum. 18 picture books have been selected; for each picture book there have been lessons created for Early – Fourth Levels (Curriculum for Excellence) driven by the Literacy and English and Health and Wellbeing Experiences and Outcomes.
Today’s Lesson: ‘The Great Big Book of Families’ – Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith
This fun and fascinating treasury features all kinds of families and their lives together. Each page showcases one aspect of home life – from houses and holidays, to schools and pets, to feelings and family trees.
‘The Great Big Book of Families’ is a brilliant text which can be used to support practitioners in exploring family diversity and celebrating that families are all different.
Kindly created and shared by the young people and adults within the Millburn ASG Equality and Diversity Working Group and the Highland Council’s LGBTI+ sub-group of the Care and Learning Equalities Improvement Group.
