This resource, written in collaboration with Scotdec(this link will open in a new window), supports teachers to explore children's rights through fiction in the classroom. 

Each activity has ideas to support teaching:

There is a resource available for Early, First and Second Level. You will also find a resource containing all three levels in one place for use in composite classes.

Where possible, we have coded the learning activities with Curriculum for Excellence's Experiences and Outcomes – however, some are more focused on class ethos or approach.

For more books you can link to the UNCRC, see our book list of picture books which explore children's rights.
