Philosophy with Kids consists of four practical teacher resource books, each covering a series of themes, ideas and activities exploring the use of philosophy with children. Familiar children's story books and poems are used to stimulate discussion.
They aim to develop listening and thinking skills, problem solving and questioning techniques and cooperative behaviour. The skills developed are applicable through all the Key Learning Areas especially in PD, Health and Literacy Development.
The agenda is set by the children themselves, working together within a community of enquiry - listening, thinking, questioning, reflecting and respecting each other’s' views.
Philosophy with Kids Books 1, 2 and 3 are best suited for use with junior and middle primary classes while Philosophy with Kids: More Ideas and Activities contains ideas and activities suitable for all primary classes.
