Humanism - Maslow's hierarchy of needs

Humanism - Maslow's hierarchy of needs

This pack includes printables to cut and glue to make your own A3 resource - which are great laminated! (You would need to draw the triangle yourself on this, but you could just enlarge the A4 worksheet instead). The image is a final resource, the tiles can be used as they are in the file, added to or changed as you see fit. The A4 worksheet is great for individual work - to be filled in with either Maslow's hierarchy for later revision purposes in students notes/files, or used as a task for the student to think about what their own hierarchy would be. This promotes thought about the concept of Humanism. (A powerpoint lesson to accompany this will be up in the next few days and available separately or as part of a pack). This task allows students to think about Maslow's ideas of what the hierarchy looks like and what their own would look like, and how the impact of simple things such as food and shelter do have an impact on our goals and what we can achieve. When used alongside a scenario as in the powerpoint this can be a powerful tool to promote discussion and deeper thought about the topic of humanism. This download also includes a Humanism handout giving an overview of the approach with evaluation points. *I do not own the copyright to the image of Maslow, this was sourced via creative commons on a search engine.
