Human Right Number Three
The Right to Life
We all have the right to life, and to live in freedom and safety.
Help the students see what freedoms they have living in the USA, where other countries may not have the same freedoms.
Example: Being allowed to have a Human Rights club, where in countries like China or Zimbabwe this would not be allowed.
Assign each student a person to interview. Explain they will need to get an in-depth understanding of this person. Have them write five to ten questions they will ask in the interview. The students who complete this can present what they learned to the club members in the next meeting.
Resist the temptation to play all 30 human rights videos at this point. Save those for each meeting that follows. Carry out the activities and let your students’ own visions of the 30 human rights materialize as the lessons unfold, one at a time.
We would love feedback on your first week and to see pictures of your group participating in these activities! Please submit to us below:
How did your meeting/activities go for this human right?
