Today, students returned to their work with Article One of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is a document published by the U.N.

Students reflected on what it means for someone to be “born free in dignity and rights”. Students  watched a video entitled “For Every Child” which was released by Unicef. You can watch it here. Students were asked to think of an image that represented what being “born free in dignity and rights” looked like after watching the video.

Students then looked at different parts of the history of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The students were broken up into eight groups. Each group was given a part of history, which they had to summarize in their notes. One student from the group wrote a summary on a larger piece of paper. The students then came back together as a class, shared their summaries, and created a timeline of the summaries. Each student had a different job in this activity.

Well done, students! Thanks for being so focused, especially on a MAP testing day.
