Street Paper

Book Now

‘Street Paper’ looks at the life of street children in India using creative role-play, debates and video presentations to learn about important global issues. Students engage in the ‘Paper Bag Game’ to model life as a street child, and employ numeracy skills to calculate their daily and weekly earnings. Will they earn enough to be able to feed their families?

The workshop develops a sense of social justice and moral responsibility in participants, through open ended questioning leading to interactive discussion. Street Paper is suitable for KS2.

“A practical, fun and engaging workshop. Street Paper is an excellent way for children to learn how other people live, giving staff and students a lot to think about.” Thurstonland First School – Teacher Feedback.
