CJ announces to the group that your mission is to
1. Divide into partners and brainstorm what a Right of the Child could mean. Write down your ideas using Wordle.
2. Write down a list of rights you have in Australia on this "A Web Whiteboard".
Which rights are most important to you and why? Do all children in Australia have the same rights? If not, who are they? Why not? Write down your thoughts!
3. The Declaration of the Rights of the Child was adopted by the UN General Assembly Resolution 1386 (XIV) on 10 December 1959. Investigate these Rights and write down any questions you might have about these rights.
4. Your class will be divided up into four teams. Select one below and see your particular mission:
5. Once you have investigated your Right of the Child from different perspectives or roles, you will debate your question. Individually, you will create an art work from your perspective or role and be prepared to show it to the class.
As a group, you will write a play or song, commercial or pantomime.
It is time to PERFORM!
You might be able to perform at a school or class assembly inviting your parents to the performance. Don't forget to think about videoing your performance!
Now, as a class, it is time to use all the knowledge you have gained from your investigations and hold a Children's Parliament.
