This unit is about the changes that are happening in the UK’s population. It aims to teach about population in more engaging, ways through stories about real people moving to or from real places, out of the UK or into the UK. Moving Stories takes an issue-based approach to population, each lesson starting with questions that students themselves are likely to ask. Students are encouraged to think critically about population issues and to become better informed.
