Peacemakers: Gandhi Unit Study Resources

I’ve listed here resources from around the web to put together a week long (or month long- depending how deep you would like to dive into this topic) unit study on peacemakers of the world; starting with definitions and children’s interpretations of peace, art and song stimulation to understand peace and then moving on to looking through the life and works of peacemakers around the world.

The focus then shifts to India, and we pick the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi to study deeper, while touching upon the history and Geography of British India and the Freedom Struggle (suited best to beginners, ages 6 years and up)
