Concept Light Bulbs
The idea of this resource is that it provides children/students with examples of concepts that are in our everyday life and central to our understanding of key concepts in particular subject areas.
Concept development and using concepts to form philosophical questions is central to philosophy for children.
Children/students need to develop their basic understanding of what a concept is in the early stages of the introduction of philosophy for children and this resource presents examples that are relevant to different age groups and subject areas as a starting point.
Whilst the sets of concepts could be introduced at a particular Key Stage or sequentially as the children become older, there are undoubtedly overlaps and if philosophy for children is introduced when children are in the later Key Stages then it is about age appropriate concepts and concepts that develop thinking within a subject area.
Blank Lightbulbs are included in every Phase pack as it is important to recognise that the list of concepts is by no means exhaustive and the nature of Philosophy for children is that children/ students will and should initiate thinking and consideration of concepts that interest and are relevant to them.
Includes 27 concept Cards and instructions for use.
