Subject Activity ideas


Explore ideas of interdependence and shared data in a Peace and Security video conference. Next, investigate the SDG 16 Survey Initiative Instrument to gather statistical data and make comparisons with other tools.


Assign learners the Peace and Security topic on the Ultimate Dialogue Adventure. Then, analyse the impact of the Sciences on peacekeeping efforts in different parts of the world, and document the impact it has made both in reaching targets and in the quality of peoples lives.

Social Science

Host an in-class dialogue about the Declaration of Human Rights and how this applies to each learner as an individual as well as society. Use the ‘What does respect look like?' activity from the Essentials of Dialogue to prepare learners for the conversation.

Language Arts

Ask learners to participate in the Peace and Security dialogue space on the Ultimate Dialogue Adventure by crafting a post about what peace looks like for them in their own community. Use the Rules for Dialogue activity from the Essentials of Dialogue before to prepare leaners to engage in the dialogue space.
