 * Ask the students who have blue eyes * Send those who do not to the back of the room and then ignore them. * Then we will invite the students back to their desks after a couple of minutes. * When the segregated students return to their desks explain to them that you would never segregate them like that again.
 * Ask each group if what had just happened was fair. * Go on to explain that each and every person has rights and should not be treated as they are not the same as others. * Ask the students if they know any groups that are discriminated against.
 * An overhead of the ten principles from the United Nation's declearation. * A copy of the Bill of Rights.
 * If their are students in the classroom that need special accomodations I will make the required changes to the lesson before-hand.
Checking For Understanding:
 * Go to each group and have them explain what their two principles that they were responsible for mean, and make sure that their explaination is in the correct context.
 * I will have each group present their two principles and write them on the board.
 * Students in each of the groups will complete a rubric to demonstrate that they completed the required elements of the activity.
