We gathered a wide variety of images that depicted various aspects of the human rights issues under general themes such as Child Labour, Child Soldiers, Hunger & Famine, Poverty & Homelessness, Refugees & War, Racism and Peace. Students were asked to create an iMovie with the images as a result of an indepth study of human rights issues. Click on the images below to take you to a specific group's iMovie.
