Can we agree the 3 most important Rights of the Child?

As a class we read through The Rights Of The Child and then decided by ourselves on our top 3 articles. Then we split into groups and had to agree on the top 3 (or 5)  in our groups. Then we used Padlet to write down our Articles we had chosen in our groups. We could then look at each others ideas and comment on them.

Tally Chart:

Article 28 had 4 votes – “Every child has a right to an education”
Article 6 had 4 votes – “Every child has the right to life”
Article 24 had 2 votes – “Every child has the right to the best possible health”
Article 16 had 1 vote – “Every child has the right to privacy”
Article 19 had 2 votes – “Protection from violence, abuse & neglect”
Article 37 had 3 votes – “Children must not be tortured, sentenced to the death penalty, suffer cruel or degrading treatmnent or punishment”
Article 34 had 1 vote – “Governments must protect children from sexual abuse & exploitation”
Article 7 had 1 vote – “Every child has the right to be registered at birth, to have a name & nationality and to know & be cared for by their parents”

One thought on “Can we agree the 3 most important Rights of the Child?

  1. I don’t think we’ll ever be able to agree on the 3 most important rights because they are all so important and 3 isn’t enough!
