Rights and Responsibilities


  •  One set of rights strips (or photos or both)

Prior to play:  Simply print the document (Rights Strips for Dice Game) and cut each of the rights into individual strips. Laminating the strips is optional. If the language used on the strips is too advanced for the grade level, use the photos (Rights Photos).

  • Invite the students to gather around you in a circle or at their desks.
  • Ask one student to choose a right strip (or photo) from the pile. Read the right aloud if using the strips, or identify the right if using the photo.

To discuss with the group: Focus the conversation on the responsibilities associated with that right. It is important to address both the rights and responsibilities in a manner that is relatable to the students and the community they live in.
