What is the Teachers' section?

As you have probably discovered, the Newsround website is full of fantastic information for teachers and pupils.

The Teachers' section will help you make the most of this unique resource.

It's a collection of easy-to-use lesson ideas based on the stories, quizzes and guides from the Newsround website. We keep it up-to-date by adding new lessons every week during term time.

Lesson ideas

Each lesson contains a short and long activity. The first can form the introduction to a full-length lesson, or be used as a stand-alone activity for people teaching in shorter tutor time slots.

The longer activity develops understanding and a plenary consolidates the learning.

There are also learning aims, extension activities, and background information - so you can teach them straight away without having to do any extra research.
