Learning about children and animal rights

Playing the English nature memory game
Playing the English nature memory game
With our last report we introduced Patricia, the pedagogue teaching the children at SINAL. She is still working every Monday afternoon with the children on topics following the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals SDGs.
A few weeks ago they started to talk about children and animal rights. She asked the pupils what they thought could be the rights of children. Each of them drew what they thought were their rights. The one right all of them drew in common, was the right to play! How lucky they always get a fifteen minute break where Patricia plays with them. Afterwards they started a discussion, because the kids, who are seven to ten-year-olds, realized there are children who are not able to pursue their rights. “This really got to me”, Patricia says,” when the children heard about the right of having enough food and they looked up at me and said:’ But there are children who don’t have any food!’ Bringing to their after school session what they had learned in class.” Another discussion was started when they learned about the right of having animals but that they had to respect the rights of the animals, too. “It was the first time they heard about animal rights.”
From the animal rights the classes went on to the topic of animals in English. Together with Vivian, the intern at SINAL and their English teacher, they created a memory game drawing the cards themselves and then writing the animals’ or plants’ names in English on one of the pairs of cards and in Portuguese on the other. After these two hours of first SDG-based learning and then the nature based English lessons both teachers and students enjoy a healthy snack. Since winter has started to arrive at SINAL these snacks have shifted from banana ice cream to granola with milk from our own cows! Afterwards, they all clean up the space they used and walk home.
Additionally, we want to inform you about the July bonus day - Donations over 100US$ made on July 18th will be matched by GlobalGiving! So bring some friends together and help us provide a space for children where they can learn about and reconnect to nature.
