Children at War

Students examine human rights by taking a closer look at children in combat. In this human rights lesson plan, students discuss the reasons that children have been used to fight wars throughout history and today. Students analyze the UN stance regarding the issue and explore the lives of child soldiers as they read and discuss personal testimonies and imagine themselves in the same situations.
