#Lesson2HumanRights

Children will start this lesson by considering what the basic things that everyone needs in life to be happy are, and whether everyone deserves these things. They will then go on to explore human rights, looking particularly at the UN Rights of the Child document, and establish that not everyone in life is given the same opportunities for a happy and healthy life. They will then consider things they are thankful for in their own lives.
