How to use these resources

This set of six lessons aims to raise 14- to 16-year-old students' awareness of the opportunities, benefits and issues of car purchase and ownership. They present a number of classroom activities that are linked to car ownership and use.

The structure will allow teachers either to use a single lesson extracted from the list, or to include more, or all, of the lessons as an identifiable Citizenship or PSHE study module.
