This Grade 3 Social Studies teaching resource offers coverage of all the indicators for the outcome PA3.3 – Make generalizations about the purpose and intent of documents that define the rights of children.
Although it has been written to meet the outcome and indicators for the Saskatchewan Social Studies curriculum, it will meet the needs of educators teaching students about the purpose and intent of documents that define the rights of children. The intention is to provide teachers with a basis for their own lesson planning for this unit.
Lessons are presented in the order of the indicators:
a. Research the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and suggest reasons for these decisions
b. Research the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and child protection legislation in Saskatchewan
c. Compare the rights and protections for children in Saskatchewan to those in international communities studied
d. Compare how the rights, responsibilities and roles of citizens in international communities studied are the same or different than those of Canadian citizens
Evaluation is on-going throughout the unit. Projects, class discussions, group work and individual activity should be noted and used for assessment purposes.
One tactic that has been found to work well is to use a binder with pages for each students. Choose four students a day to observe and write anecdotal notes about their work in all subjects for that day. Then when time comes to write report cards you have all the information you need for your grade and comments in accordance with the assessment rubrics.
