Product Description
Are there rights that all children deserve?

Youth will think about the core similarities among all children, no matter who they are, and how those similarities relate to the Convention on the Rights of the Child created by the United Nations. They will play a children’s rights matching game to practice vocabulary and will match words to pictures. Then, they will compare the children’s rights to their original list of what they think all children have in common. They will imagine what the world would actually look like if all children had these rights compared to how the world is today. They will create a book of children’s rights to show, through writing and illustration, what these rights mean to them. Finally, they will think about how knowing about these rights might influence how they will treat other people and their actions in the future.

Students will be able to…
 Identify at least five children’s rights.
 Describe the United Nations.
 Compare and contrast wants and needs to rights.
 Create a mini book based on what they learned about children’s rights.

Check out our 100% free common core aligned lessons that teach students to be caring and compassionate toward people, animals, and our planet. HEART's ready to print lesson plans and activities teach ELA, literacy and math skills from Kindergarten to middle school to high school.

This lesson is from our new 2017-18 comprehensive resource guide Justice for All: Educating Youth for Social Responsibility. Comprehensive humane education addresses human rights, animal protection, environmental ethics, and the ways in which these areas are interconnected. Imagine a world where children learn to peacefully co-exist with one another; a world where children learn to respect and honor the environment; a world where children learn to protect the myriad species with whom we share this planet. Humane education encourages students to think about their responsibility to the earth and all of its inhabitants, and provides youth with the tools to make more informed and compassionate choices. By allowing students to learn crucial information and develop solutions for many of the modern issues facing our world, humane education promises to usher in a global community that is prepared to make the planet a more peaceful and sustainable place.
