Put yourself in the position of a Syrian refugee
This resource from The Guardian could offer students an excellent way of considering the negative social consequences of civil war and internal conflict.
This is an interactive 'journey' in the life of a Syrian refugee who has decided to flee the country. At each stage of their journey, you can choose from the relevant options- the first being which route out of the country you decide to take. It is interspersed with more information and latest news about the growing crisis with Syrian refugees as well as video reports. I'm thinking this would make a good piece of extension reading/homework for a class that could then aid discussion the following lesson, or be used as a prompt for some exam questions or part of an essay answer.
