Syria: Children in conflict

Encourage your pupils to compare and contrast their lives with that of Israa, a 13-year-old Syrian refugee, living in Zaatari Refugee Camp, northern Jordan. Discover what life was like for Israa before and after the civil war started and write newspaper articles or blog posts about Israa’s story.
