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 Paper Bag Princess’ – Robert Munsch
Princess Elizabeth is excited to marry dreamy Prince Ronald, but then a dragon attacks the castle, kidnaps her prince, and burns all her clothes.Elizabeth dons a paper bag, finds and outsmarts the dragon, and rescues Ronald—who is less than pleased at her unprincesslike appearance.
‘The Paper Bag Princess’ is a great picture book which challenges gender stereotypes and perceptions of appearance.
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.
