The G7 (Lesson Plan)

Overview

During this two lesson pack pupils learn about the G7 and take part in a mock G7 Summit meeting.

In the first lesson pupils explore the history and function of the G7 and are introduced to the sort of discussions held at the annual G7 Summit. They learn about the role of the member countries and explore some of the key achievements of the G7.

In the second lesson pupils have the opportunity to represent a group or country as they explore the topic of climate change. Working together they look at challenges, opportunities and solutions relating to climate change and present these ideas as ‘interventions’ at a class Summit meeting.

If you wish to explore the G7 further and plan for a mock G7 Summit meeting take a look at our G7 Assembly pack.
