Resources from P4C.com during the Covid-19 Crisis

We are a subscription website for resources and guides to help people philosophise with children. But now that people are isolated at home across the world, we all need to think of ways to support each other. So during this period, we are offering some links, ideas and free resources to everyone who visits our site.

Thinking philosophically may not be the most important thing to do at the moment but it is diverting, it induces thoughtfulness and it may have some value for life in the present and future.

Why not explore the section boxes further below on this page marked with C-19, then click on the green buttons.

Welcome to p4c.com

Philosophy for Children (p4c) is a wonderful way of bringing teachers and children together to discuss things that matter. It has many benefits for both groups. But there aren’t enough hours in the day to discover new materials, produce resources and lesson plans and invent new activities to keep you and your pupils interested. That’s why we have done a lot of work for you by publishing ideas, lesson plans, resources and recommendations on-line.
