SNS Resources on Israel-Palestine

These free resources have been developed in-house by the SNS team to offer teachers & their students resource materials that can be used in class or by students learning remotely. They are themed and are designed to be interactive, with multimedia elements, questions, time for reflection, and scope for further reading & learning.

We would strongly advise using these resources alongside booking a full SNS Israel-Palestine workshop, as although they are designed to be used independently, students will get the most out of them if they have a better grasp of the context of the conflict in Israel-Palestine which our workshops provide. For more info and to book, click here.

These resources are free to use & download for schools, teachers & students only. If you are from a different organisation and are interested in utilising these resources in some way, please get in touch with SNS to discuss details.
