    Absolutely love the thought provoking activities on this sheet! Lots of different ones for kidney transplant, the ethics around it etc. Really good to motivate pupils and to get pupils realising the problems we have today with limited numbers of donations. Excellent. The video is quite useful too but would definately suggest a look at the activity sheet!
