Peace and Global Education Lesson Plans
From War Toys to Peace Art
The teaching resource guide, Acts of transformation from war toys to peace art, is
dedicated to Sam Fillipoff who was an elementary teacher in Vancouver and a tireless advocate for the culture of peace for all children.
The Israel-Palestine conflict is one of the most controversial issues in our contemporary world. This unit—which was initiated by the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) Representative Assembly—approaches the conflict through the vehicle of narrative
constructed through the judicious use of facts and perspectives. The unit materials include a broad spectrum of resources, lessons plans, and assignments that will produce multiple narratives based on individual perspectives.
