The Meaning of Home
Our home influences nearly every aspect of our lives, from how well we sleep and how secure and safe we feel to how often we see our friends and family. Our home environment plays a huge role in our overall health and well-being.
This lesson aims to enable pupils to consider the importance of home. Activities explore the concepts of house, home and family. They give pupils opportunities to consider the similarities and differences between homes locally and around the world.
Throughout the activities, encourage your pupils to reflect on what home means to them. Pupils need to understand the value of home before they can think about being without a home.
