This excellent set of posters from Oxfam introduces the eight United Nations Millennium Development Goals to pupils aged 7 to 14. Issues covered in the pack include: trade, aid, and debt; education; environment; HIV/AIDS; poverty and hunger; and gender.
Each A2 poster has a colour photograph on one side, and several activities on the back. The activities focus on issues related to world poverty and how it can be overcome. Activities can be adapted for different abilities. Many of the activities include real-life stories from places such as Kenya and Pakistan. Each activity works in isolation, but they can also be used as a series, starting with three introductory activities looking at the Millennium Development Goals and the United Nations in general.
You can download the posters and activities as PDFs for free from the Oxfam website listed below, where there is also an update on how far we’ve got in achieving the MDGs.
