Lower School Rights Week

It’s Rights Week in the Lower School, an opportunity for students to learn about the rights of specific individuals and groups through hands-on activities. On November 13, prekindergartners who are studying environmental rights enjoyed a visit from Eco Adventures and had an up-close look at a variety of animals as they learned about protecting natural habitats. A representative from BARCS (and her adopted puppy) taught kindergartners about the rights of domestic animals. Meanwhile, first graders talked about the rights of all children and signed a pledge to be kind and fearless, while second graders who are studying women’s rights held a march around Elderkin Hall. Stay tuned for more Rights Week action!
