Rationale
This lesson scaffolds learning by building on students previous
knowledge of groups and communities.
Responsibilities and rights are introduced separately so as to focus
on their respective definitions and examples.
Wrap-up activity consolidates learning by students identifying what is
a right and what is a responsibility.
This lesson serves as an introduction to link to next lesson which will
emphasize associating rights and responsibilities in all activities
students engage in.
