[TIPS] Universal Declaration of Human Rights - animated

Many years ago – maybe fifteen or more – I acquired a cdrom about human rights. It was a haunting cd with incredible graphics that told of the basic human rights as set forth by the General assembly of the United Nations in 1949. I’ve still got it around here someplace, I’m sure.

This is another animation showing those basic human rights.

WAIT!!! I found it! It’s on YouTube, as well. CHECK THIS OUT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epVZrYbDVis

Outstanding!!

Now, if this isn’t at least a writing prompt for you then I don’t know what is. Combine this with the other site I sent out recently ( http://tipline.blogspot.com/2008/10/tips-miniature-world.html) and you’ve got a powerful lesson. Wouldn’t you agree?

Send this to your favorite social studies teacher.
