[Sticky] 1.4 Activity
This video sums it all up really, the children's reactions and how they worked it out together was very effective in realising the everyday occurrences around gender stereotyping.
I think an activity like this or a class discussion as to the difference treatment of boys/girls in our school would be a really interesting starting point.
I think that the activity in the video was a very good way to make the point that discrimination in terms of gender is not simply unfair, but also ridiculous.
In class you could encourage children to role play executing different types of tasks at home, at work etc, and to make sure that it becomes normal for them to envisage themselves in any role of their choosing. One should not take for granted that children are always afforded this opportunity or right in their own home or community setting.
