New Release: Woven Threads Teaching Toolkit

ACTF Education is very pleased to announce the launch of our newest resource, the Woven Threads: Stories from Afar Teaching Toolkit. Containing curriculum-mapped learning tasks for Year 5-10 students, this resource draws on content from a range of learning areas and capabilities, including English, Health and Physical Education, and Intercultural Capability. 

Woven Threads: Stories from Afar is an 8 x 4-minute series which presents varied refugee stories through beautiful and powerful animations. The emotive storytelling compels us to remember our shared humanity, and to identify with the universality of the refugee experience.


The Woven Threads: Stories from Afar Teaching Toolkit aims to support teachers in exploring key themes from the series. The resources also aims to build students’ understanding of, and empathy with, refugees and asylum seekers. It contains curriculum-mapped learning tasks for Year 5-10 students, drawing on content from a wide range of learning areas, capabilities, and cross-curricular priorities. Tasks were designed with an inquiry approach, aiming to foster communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking in the classroom.
