The United Nations

The United Nations

After the atrocities of the Second World War (millions of Jews were killed and many others) some countries got together and decided that something like that could not happen again. They formed the United Nations. The United Nations drew up a list of basic Human Rights (1948) that everyone should be entitled to – this is called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These worksheets help the students to discuss what they consider essential to living and compare their thoughts to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. In addition they look in detail at the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and discuss whose responsibility it is to uphold these

UN Conventions Rights of the Child Assembly ppt

UN Conventions Rights of the Child Assembly ppt

This is a powerpoint I created outlining the UN Convention’s Children’s Rights. I gave the opportunity to our School Councilors to deliver the assembly in order to gain a ‘Promoting Active Democracy’ award for the school. Each slide outlines a different right and the notes for each slide were given to the children to present to the school. Good resource to use in the run up to National Children’s Day.
