Background For Teachers:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
This is the time for the field trip or other presentations to make the past 'alive' for the students.
Work to make a second list of the day in the life of a child in Utah's past. Maybe interview grandparents about their lives. Try for details.
Compare the two lists that have been created. Setting them up in parallel format will help the students to more easily make comparisons:
Discuss what responsibilities current children have in common. Make a list of those the class can agree to.
Discuss what responsibilities historic children had in common. After agreement is reached list these.
Decide who had greater responsibility. Be able to give good reasons for your decision.
Talk with the class about the relationship of rights and responsibilities. The right to vote and the responsibility to be informed, the right to drive and the responsibility to do so safely, the right to go to school and the responsibility to learn, etc.
In light of the preceding discussions, which group of children should have more rights?
Hold a debate on the rights and responsibilities of modern children vs. children from Utah's past.
Interview grandparents to compare their childhood lives with that of the students. Perhaps a local citizen who can remember the local community would be a good class alternative. Create a display showing childhood lives then and now.
Create a pioneer day from the child's point of view. Include games, tasks, school, chores, food and the like.
