An Introduction to Human Rights and Responsibilities provides students with the opportunity to explore the meaning of ‘rights’ and develop an understanding of human rights, and the responsibilities that complement them.

This resource has been designed to be used with an interactive whiteboard but can also be used on any internet enabled device, including a computer or tablet hooked up to a data projector. It includes two interactive lessons with accompanying teacher resources (including lesson plans) and suggested homework activities and has been mapped to the Australian Curriculum for Humanities and Social Sciences for Years 5 & 6.
