My Rights, Our Rights

Early Years (K-4)

90 minutes

Using a child-friendly version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, students discover their rights and learn to respect each other’s rights. Song and movement are used to learn about empathy and how our actions can impact others. 

Students learn about the rights we all have as human beings. 

Students experience a panoramic film that conveys Indigenous world views and ideas of rights, responsibilities and humanity. 

Students participate in a motion-sensored light game. As they move and interact with one another, the circles of light blend and expand – a symbol of how our actions can affect and impact others. 

Students discuss the importance of inclusion, what’s fair, the concept of empathy as well as how to show respect for each other’s rights.

Students celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary as they focus on the Canada 150 themes of diversity and inclusion, and youth.
