The aim of ethicsfun.com is to provide simple tools for anyone wanting to introduce and teach ethical understanding and reasoning to young children.
The topics featured in the ethicsfun.com cartoons have been selected after consulting a wide range of books, curriculums and websites about Philosophy for children (P4C). They also support the Ethical Understanding and Critical & Creative Thinking General Capabilities in the Australian Primary Curriculum.
The approach taken for the discussion prompts provided for teachers is modelled on Socratic dialogue as well as contemporary teaching styles. More resources are being constantly developed and we welcome feedback and ideas on things to include. Philosophy has always been an evolving discipline which benefits most from open discussion and the sharing of opinions. This website is a resource that provides simple entry-level lessons for teachers and parents as well as reviews and information about a wide range of resources that have been developed for teaching philosophy to children. We are always adding to our resource section, so please contact us with any new recommendations.
