Year 2

Taking action against prejudice

In this activity students consider how to address different types of discrimination which exist in society.

4.3: What makes a good school?

Tasks

  1. Following on from the activity Discrimination covered in the last section, display the two columns of Handout 15: Types of discrimination previously completed by the class.
  2. Ask students to focus on the remaining two columns of the handout. As a class, ask students to complete columns C and D focusing on how we can make things fair for all.
  3. When all of the columns have been completed, divide the class into small groups of three or four. Divide the completed handout into rows and give a different row to each group. Ask groups to transfer information from the rows on to large sheets of paper. These sheets may be decorated if you wish.
  4. Display the completed sheets in the classroom as examples of how to address different types of discrimination which exist in society.

Teacher notes
