Resources for children and young people
Our resources are all free to download and we have hard copies of some resources that can be provided to schools or for home schooling purposes on request.
Secondary school resources
We developed this set of resources for Scottish secondary school pupils and they cover key components of the Scottish curriculum. They are relevant to parts of the National 4, National 5, and Higher Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies (RMPS) SQA qualification, and support learning for students studying RME at later Curriculum for Excellence levels.
Each booklet is relevant to a topic in the ‘morality and belief’ portion of the RMPS qualification, and gives students an understanding of a humanist approach to the key moral questions covered in each topic area. The booklets also contain suggested activities to aid learning.
- Humanism on Justice
- Humanism on Relationships
- Humanism on Medicine and the Human Body
- Humanism on Conflict
- Humanism on Environment and Global Issues
- Humanism on Philosophical questions
This short animation was developed and produced with support from Young Humanists Scotland and gives a two minute explanation of humanism, ideal for classroom use with young people.
Our YouTube channel has other resources that may be suitable for classroom or home study use.
Our Daily Discovery wall chart science calendar contains a scientific fact for every day of the year. Free to download.
Primary school resources
We can also supply free copies of What is Humanism? How do you live without a God and other big questions for kids by Michael Rosen and Annemarie Young to Scottish primary schools. Just get in touch.
