Project on Human Rights


Last year this was part of our study of Human Rights. I went to the UN Rights of a Child Charter from the UN Cyberschoolbus.

I then went a site similar to this one (as the one we used is no longer free) and typed out the UN Rights one page each for our daughter to complete in cursive handwriting. For less than 10 days she copied them out and we discussed each of the rights.

I then went to the internet and found pictures that I thought would represent some of these rights around the world. Our daughter chose which of the pictures she felt best represented the UN Rights of a Child Charter and made then into a poster along with the copied rights. 
This opened up much conversation of how for some children these rights were not a reality. It tied into our study of Afghanistan, Eastern Europe and China.
Blessings!
