2 By the end of the lesson you should be able to answer these questions… 1.What does the United Nations say about rights? 2.Is there a link between rights & religion? The United Nations & The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. An international organisation, called the United Nations, including most of the countries in the world, wrote the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. It was written after the Second World War, to try to make sure that events like the Holocaust could not happen again. It is a declaration that states 30 rights that people should have, to make sure they are treated fairly & properly. It is not a wish-list of rights, but it is now international law. It still exists & is very important today. It was based on the beliefs & teachings of many world religions.

3 In this game you need to use logical thinking to deduce which of these rights you think are from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights & which are made up. When you click on the right, if it is correct you will hear applause – if it is incorrect you will hear a bomb exploding! Everybody should own a car. Everybody should be able to afford to eat in a restaurant at least once a week. Everybody should have a pet. When children are born they are free & should all be treated in the same way. You have the right to have whatever you need so that you and your family: do not get ill or go hungry; have clothes and a house; and are helped if you are out of work, if you are ill or if you are old. You have a duty to look after people in your community. The law of your country should allow everyone to respect others and to be respected themselves. You have the right to talk about your religion to other people, to change it & to practise it.

4 These are 5 rights from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Read them through as a class & answer the questions together? When children are born they are free & should all be treated in the same way. Q. If children should all be treated in the same way does that mean they are all the same? You have the right to have whatever you need so that you and your family: do not get ill or go hungry; have clothes and a house; and are helped if you are out of work, if you are ill or if you are old. Q. Should the poorest people be helped first to have what they need? Why? You have a duty to look after people in your community. The law of your country should allow everyone to respect others and to be respected themselves. Q. Why should we look after other people? You have the right to talk about your religion to other people, to change it & to practise it. Q. Is it important to be able to talk about what you believe?

6 Many of the rights in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are based on the teachings & beliefs of world religions. Watch this Christian story from the Bible, called The Good Samaritan and think about the rights that we have just been talking about that the man who is attacked loses… The rights are here to remind you: When children are born they are free & should all be treated in the same way. You have the right to live in freedom & safety. You have the right to talk about your religion to other people, to change it & to practise it. You have a duty to look after people in your community. The law of your country should allow everyone to respect others and to be respected themselves. You have the right to have whatever you need so that you and your family: do not get ill or go hungry; have clothes and a house; and are helped if you are out of work, if you are ill or if you are old. www.youtube.com/watch?v=QA7P-EpLc_Q What rights did the man who was attacked lose? Thinking about his rights, should the people passing by have treated him differently?

7 Our aim for todays lesson was to be able to answer the questions below. Can we answer them as a class? What does the United Nations say about rights? Is there a link between rights and religion? The story you watched was called The Good Samaritan. The Samaritan was the last man who helped the person who had been attacked & he expected nothing in return for helping. This week you need to Be a Good Samaritan & do 1 thing for somebody where you expect nothing in return for helping. What kinds of things could you do?
