Children’s rights and children on the street

Home » Educational Resources » Children’s rights and children on the street

This lesson introduces pupils to the idea of children’s rights.

Using fun activity cards, it explores the difference between a ‘want’ and a ‘need’ and gets pupils to think about the rights that every child deserves – wherever they are in the world.

The accompanying PowerPoint then introduces learners to the global issue of children living on the street.

The lesson as a whole raises awareness of rich and poor and encourages interest in and concern for others.
