Introduction

 

February 08 – February 28 - 2016

 

 

Before we start to learn and work together,

it is nice to know who everyone is.
We will also make an introduction to children's rights. 

In the Wiki, there is a school page for every group.

If you click on the name of your school on this page,
you can
 start with the first phase!

 

 

 


 

Introduction

 

In this Learning Circle we will become aware of the importance of children's rights, for everyone, everywhere, because 
every child has a right to a happy life and a good future.

What this means, can differ a lot when you grow up in different parts of the world, under different circumstances.

In the challenges presented during the project, in the upcoming months, you will investigate with your peers, teachers, parents and members in your community and share how you experiences and think of children's rights in your own environment. 

You too can express your opinion on the meaning and importance of children's rights!

 

What do you see, feel and think of?

By discussing the questions and statements below together, we will make a start. By making a report of your first discussions and the explorations of The Rights of the Child, the other groups will be able to know more about your thoughts and opinions.

This way, we'll have one big classroom and invite other participants to learn a lot more with and about each other.

 



 

What are we going to do?

 

As we'll be working together the next couple of months, it is nice to meet each other first. Who are you and who are the other participants in the Circle?

Think of a way together to introduce your school and your class and your community.

This can be by making a song or a lipdub, or by writing a story about your country and environment, or by making a weird, awesome group picture!

In addition, think about what is interesting to the other participants to know about you.

 

How are we going to do this and what do we need?

 

Introduction part 1Present your class and school in a creative way on your own page. You can do this with pictures, a short clip, a rap or song or whatever you as a group want! Find some inspiration from last year's Learning Circles here. But of course you can also surprise us in your own way!

 

Introduction part 2In your own way, elaborate on what children's rights mean to you

Post the statements and opinions from your conversations on your schoolpage.

 

More information on Children's Rights.

 

More information on children's rights.

You can find all the children's rights on the Convention on the Rights of the Child. On November 20, 1989, the convention was approved by the United Nations in New York.

By now, the convention is signed by almost every country in the world and it applies in 192 countries. In 54 articles, the agreements touch upon almost everything you encounter in life, from birth until your eighteenth birthday. They are about school, living conditions, health, religion, parents and friends, but also about child labour, war and refugee children.

Together we will discover how each of the countries commit to the convention and what these rights mean to you and other children. Read more...

 

Reflective questions.

 

Reflective questions about children's rights can help you start a conversation together and delve into the topic a bit more.

We collected a few questions you can easily  download and print.

You can use these questions in small groups or during a discussion in your class.

 

An idea for your classroom: make a tree together!

  

Put up a tree in the classroom. On every leaf, you can write a thought, opinion or statement about children's rights.

This way the tree can become a Children's Rights tree!
