Writing Ideas to Help Kids Explore United Nations Day— On October14, United Nations Day, countries all over the world celebrate the goals and power of the UN. From eliminating poverty to creating equality across the world, the UN plays an important role in procuring human rights for all people.
These writing prompts honor the UN’s goals and ideals. Students will think about the importance of diversity, barriers to world peace, and the ways in which world issues affect them. As they journal, students will learn all kinds of new things, including these two important lessons—that their individual ideas have great value, and that they truly have the power to make a difference.
Encourage students to think about the value of diverse viewpoints, tolerance, and acceptance on United Nations Day. These journal prompts offer an engaging, accessible approach to help students understand complex issues in today’s world.
Whether students need to improve their writing or their communication skills, journaling is an important tool that offers numerous benefits. Journaling allows a student to take an idea and shape it on the page, exploring nuances and complexities that might be difficult to articulate verbally. When students journal, they develop critical thinking skills and strengthen their creative muscles. As they move on to more difficult subjects in later schooling and adulthood, these invaluable skills continue to serve them.
