Lesson plans and activities for those working with children and young people

We have developed materials for educators to explore issues relating to children’s rights in Ireland with children and young people.

Available in English and Irish, and written by experienced teachers, these resources are easily downloadable and adaptable.

September 2017 marked the 25th Anniversary of Ireland’s ratification of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child. The Ombudsman for Children’s office marked this significant milestone by inviting everyone to get involved and to celebrate ‘Children Now, Rights Now’.

We have created a range of educational resources for teachers and educators to help teach young people of all ages about their rights and about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Making Children’s Rights Real is a suite of resource materials to support teachers in primary and post-primary schools to explore children’s rights with their students in the context of curriculum teaching and learning.

The materials include an important focus on supporting children and young people to implement an action for children’s rights.
