Human Rights in the US

Introduce your class to human rights and ask them to consider big questions about being human. Small groups create characters and represent their characters on large paper with images and words. After a discussion, they define human rights, create collages about specific human rights, talk about rights and needs, and reflect on the lesson as a whole.
