#UPROOTED PRIMARY LESSONS -  Take part in UNICEF Ireland's #Uprooted campaign, which aims to explore the lives of refugees and migrants living in Ireland. Through video, activities and discussion, children will gain a better understanding of the root causes of migration and the needs and experiences of children who have made Ireland their home. 

Vera Shanahan developed the #Uprooted Primary lesson plans. She is a primary school teacher in Malahide Portmarnock Educate Together National School. Natasha Clyma produced the Teacher Guidance document and the Learner Journal.
