Wants and Needs Cards

The 20 illustrated cards show aspects of life that pupils have to decide are either a ‘want’ or a ‘need’, leading to recognition that ‘needs’ are also ‘rights’. The cards are an ideal way of introducing children’s rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. They are suitable for 8-16-year-olds. There are also two A4 sheets for teachers with accompanying activities and a summary of the Convention.
