Go to the The
Rights of the
Child page and
3. Read it as a group, discuss what it means and rewrite it in your own words - either in Wordle or on "A Web Whiteboard". You might need to have a dictionary handy or use the online dictionary and Wikipedia.)

Debate/Discussion: Should the removal of Aboriginal children from
their families have occurred in Australia? Why? or Why Not?
Come to consensus about the Questions and be ready to explain them to the rest of the class.
7. CREATIVE ACTIVITIES:
After you have debated your question, you are to create a piece of art work and a play, song or commercial about your Right and the issues surrounding it. Remember, it is important to show the complexities of this issue (there are many sides and people have different views).
Each student is to create their own art work or cartoon about the children and their situation from your perspective.
Together, as a team, you are to create a puppet play, song, commercial or pantomime about your Rights of the Child.
You can stay in your perspective or role.
Your team must cover the following duties (so you need to allocate two people to each duty):
Writer - your job is to create the script for the puppet play; or, the theme for the song; or the words for the commercial or pantomime.
Designer - your job is to create the backdrop for the puppet play; or, commercial or pantomime. If your group decides to create a song, you need to design the CD cover for it.
Performers - your job is to covert the script into a creative piece of work!
Ideas Contributor/Director you need to be creative and think of ideas and direct the performance.
