ACTIVITY 4: The Body of Human Rights


Overview: Participants relate articles of the UDHR to parts of the body.

Time: 30 minutes.

Materials: Large paper, markers, copies of the UDHR.


1. Working in small groups, participants draw the outline of a person (or outline a group member) on the paper.

2. They then try to locate each article of the UDHR on a particular part of the body, writing the number of the article in the appropriate place (e.g., Article 26, Right to Education, might be written on the head).

3. Have a "gallery walk" to compare these figures and discuss. See "Technique 4: Gallery Walk," p. 76.
