Your rights in Lego: 5 children's rights built out of blocks

20 March 2017

Buildings, spaceships, monsters... there are a lot of things you can build out of Lego.

But have you thought of using building blocks to help explain children's rights?

Miss Grounds' class at Clermiston Primary School did exactly that.

After spending a lesson learning about children's rights, they decided to use Lego to build models of five of the rights they'd heard about:

The right to an education
