Representing LGBTQ+ characters in fiction
Annabel Thor That sounds brilliant. How old is he-primary or secondary? There are lots of interesting free websites for home educators. The map idea sounds fab. You could also work on coordinates and tracing a route on a map with a piece of string etc. Also, make a papier mache large map with different terrains looking a little like the sort of maps that they had in operation control rooms during the war? There are some fabulous map games too- there are printables online of flags - Sparklebox has quite a few print outs for younger children. If you look on https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources some are free. I am an ex-tutor, so know quite a lot about online resources. It can be cool to buy a URL from Namecheap and launch a free website from Weebly or Wix and list lots of resources on it to click into easily, having a page for each topic. With a subscription to Weebly, it is possible to launch videos and You Tube clips online too - this can be great for learning. Glogster is cool as well- this is free up to a point and works like an online story board. Brainpop is a real favourite- it is via subscription but it is so interesting and has small tutorials and then questions after. So much to learn- the list is endless... Good luck!
