The Rainbow Flag Award Classroom is home to 40+ LGBT+ inclusive lessons, covering 12 different subjects. Each lesson is written to the National Curriculum for England and aims to teach subject-specific content but LGBT+ people, lives and history have been sprinkled throughout to support teachers in positively representing the LGBT+ community.

Each lesson includes a lesson plan, resources and a PowerPoint, all of which are completely FREE to download and use.

This pack has been created around the book Alien Nation to support primary schools in teaching about gender identity, celebrating our differences, as well as sharing that trans and non-binary people exist and that being trans is usual.

As mentioned in LGBT+ Identities, children become aware of their gender at around three-years old. It is important that the trans and non-binary young people in your school see their identity positively represented.

 

Aimed at KS2, this resource includes:

  • The book Alien Nation.
  • Five fully resourced lessons to support you in positively teaching about gender identity.
  • A set of three Alien Nation posters.
  • A Trans Pride Flag.

Alien Nation is a story of friendship, solidarity and celebrating our differences. This book explores gender, gender expectations, gender roles and gender identity in an age-appropriate and easy to understand way.

Alongside the book, we have created a prop pack to make reading the book even more fun and interactive!
