Formal/Informal Education

  • TeachUNICEF resources are designed with classroom teachers in mind: Teaching units, for example, have clearly defined objectives, ready-to-go activities, and enduring understandings and essential questions, and they are aligned with the Common Core State Standards and standards from national associations like the National Council for the Social Studies.
  • TeachUNICEF offerings are accessible and easily adaptable for out-of-school time educators and parents as well.

Educational Services

  • UNICEF ACT periodic, comprehensive sets of instructional resources on topics of global concern. Centered around a student magazine that explores current issues through informational texts, photography, data and more, each edition highlights a significant present-day humanitarian need. UNICEF ACT magazines are accompanied by a teacher’s guide, and all materials are aligned to national content standards and Common Core State Standards.
  • TeachUNICEF Classroom Resources for educators cover grades PK-12, are interdisciplinary (social studies, science, math, English/language arts, foreign/world languages), and align with standards. The teaching units, videos, multi-media resources, and more cover topics ranging from global citizenship to water and sanitation. All TeachUNICEF resources can be downloaded for free from org.
  • UNICEF Global Action is a free program that introduces New York City fifth-through-eighth-graders to child rights, global citizenship, and UNICEF’s lifesaving emergency relief work. The core of UNICEF Global Action is an interactive simulation workshop, conducted in classrooms by TeachUNICEF educators. TeachUNICEF also provides teachers with a training that establishes a foundation for global citizenship education, introduces them to the simulation, and explores ways to integrate global learning across the curriculum and throughout the year.
  • Educator Workshops: Occasional workshops at several national conferences and other venues provide in-service and pre-service educators an opportunity to learn about TeachUNICEF resources and determine how to use and adapt them in their teaching.
