Human Rights Education Activities

Logo_of_the_Canadian_Museum_for_Human_RightsAside from being a great place to learn about and celebrate human rights, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights has excellent educational resources available on their website.

Their Human Rights Education Activities, available for grade K-12, includes reference sheets with definitions, tips for facilitation, as well as ways to engage students requiring greater accessibility options (I love the section on how to deal with challenges in group discussions such as if nobody wants to speak or if students do not enjoy the activity). The activities explore a range of human rights issues, encouraging active participation and capacity-building. Use these resources as stand-alone classroom activities or as pre- and post-visit activities to complement a visit to the Museum!

The website also shares Canadian Human Rights Toolkits from a number of sources, on a variety of different themes.
