Why Lesson Planet?
Middle and high schoolers engage in a lesson about rights and responsibilities, and the differences between them. After a class discussion, pupils break off into pairs and come up with mimes that respect or abuse a specific right such as; the right to an education, or a right to privacy. They act out these mimes in front of the class, and everyone tries to guess which right is being acted out. When the right is guessed correctly, they discuss the responsibility that is linked to the right. Very good!
