Body Positivity + Obesity

One hour, fully resourced lesson (PowerPoint, worksheets, clip tasks, activities, all differentiated three ways) all about the debate surrounding body positivity and obesity. The lesson introduces students to the health risks of obesity and also the positives of body positivity, before focusing on the debate surrounding the plus-size model Tess Holliday’s appearance on the front cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine. Students create extended responses to Piers Morgan’s negative tweeting about plus-size models as a literacy focus task.

The lesson is adaptable, easy to follow and fully differentiated. It could be used by a PSHE or Tutor group. It is suitable for KS3 or KS4.

This resource pack includes an hour long PowerPoint with accompanying worksheets, templates, well differentiated activities, literacy focus tasks, clip tasks with three-way differentiated questions and information sheets.

The lesson has been left editable and is filled with engaging, well differentiated and fun activities. As with all our lessons, you don’t need any prior knowledge as all the information is included - you can just pick up and teach it.
