Resources for educators to build awareness of the Constitution, children’s rights and democracy through dialogue and play
For ongoing partnerships that support the promotion of children’s rights and human rights, we are grateful to our partners at Constitution Hill, the Constitution Hill Trust, and the Constitutional Court.
South Africa’s Constitution was drafted with support from Canadian advisory teams and Canadian law and jurisprudence helped shape the understanding and application of rights in a new, democratic South Africa. The development of
My Constitution, as well as other Play Africa programmes to promote active citizenship, have been made possible with the support of the Government of Canada and the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives.
Each grade includes playful lessons in four topics:
Topic 1: Introduction to the Constitution and Bill of Rights
Topic 2: Freedom of Expression – Using my voice with others
Topic 3: The Rule of Law – Using my voice in a court case
Topic 4: Democracy – Using my voice in an election
