Second a Day Video
This week we watched the thought provoking video “Second a Day” It is part of out current Unit of Inquiry- Children’s rights and responsibilities exist to enable equitable opportunities.
Lines of Inquiry:
- Children’s rights and equity
- Circumstances that determine a child’s access to opportunities
- The role of social responsibility and action. (perspective, responsibility, causation)
In particular, the video address the circumstances that determine a child’s access to opportunities.
Here are some of the children’s responses after watching the video. Hopefully, you received your child’s See Saw reflection.
Lai Bao- Yesterday I watched a video called “Second a day”. In the video a girl was living her normal life and suddenly a war started in her country and she had to leave her country. On her way she lost her parents. How it happened is that she left her country and her dad got trapped between a checkpoint but luckily she and her mom went in a refugee camp that’s where she makes some friends that happened only in a year! then some kind of people invaded the refugee camp that she was in. I learnt from watching the video that children’s lives can be affected by circumstances that they can’t control
Murphy- Yesterday we watched a video about a little girl who at first leads a very good life and after a while the girls life dramatically changes from rich to poor so… At the start (the first 20 seconds) the girls life is very good then a few news reports come on the TV about a war so the family moves to another house far away from the war. later they have bombs drop on there house so they leave at a check point the dad gets separated from the family later they end up at a refugee camp in the medic tent and that is the end of the video I learnt from watching the video that children’s lives can be affected by circumstances that they can’t control.
Matz- Yesterday we watched a video called “Second a Day”.The movie was about this girl and she was having a normal life. Kinda like the one we are having right now. She went to school and played a instrument. She had a grandma that visited and she was able to play at the park with her parents. She also went trick-or-treating and she got a birthday party. But then a war started breaking out and her parent watched about the war on the news. The war had not yet come to the place were the girl and her family lived. Her parents argued about leaving the country because the war was starting in the place that she lived. Then her house got bombed and she had to hide in her basement. They ran out of water and medicine. They escaped their house and was walking to a different country. But their car got shot down and they had to live under a bridge and eat rotten food. Her hair started falling apart because of stress and not eating enough. She got separated from her dad and she got send to a refuge camp and she got medication and they now live in a tent. I really liked that movie because it was scary but it showed real life and it was really realistic. What I did not like was how scary it was and how there was a lot of explosions and shooting. I learnt from watching the video that children’s lives can be affected by circumstances that they can’t control.
Kaya- Yesterday, my class and I watched a video called “Second A Day “. At the start of the video there was a girl celebrating her birthday girl who had a safe and normal life with her family, healthy food, clean water, got educated, got money etc. was really happy until a war came and started in her country, she didn’t know at first but her parent knew, they were fighting about if they were going to stay or leave their country. When the war finally started her family lost their house and their money, they became refugees, escaping town after town in their country. Every house they went to something would go wrong (electricity, bombing etc.) They hid in the basement where they would be safe from bombing and other shootings. She started getting sick, and her hair was falling out because of stress. She only got rotten food, dirty water, and her family’s medicine was running out. Eventually the girl got put in a refugee camp for people who had to escape their country because of the war. A year passed and the girls mom celebrated the girls birthday, the girl didn’t seem very happy though. I learnt from watching the video that children’s lives can be affected by circumstances they can’t control
Isabelle-In the video “Second a day it was the girls” birthday and she had her family and friends at her party. Her life was pretty normal and she had a nice house. But there was a war coming close to her but she didn’t know because she was playing. Her mom was looking worried. A few days later the war came and the power went off and she was scared. They stayed in the basement for the night. The next day they packed all their belongings and fled as fast as they could. There was a lot of gas so her mother put a gas mask on her but the mother was getting weak because she took in so much gas. Then they went to refugee camp but it was boys in one and girls in another camp. The girl got health checks for diseases that could kill other people.Then they got sent to a tent. It was her birthday again and all she got was a lump of gooey stuff and one candle. I learnt from watching that video that children children’s lives can be affected by circumstances they can’t control.
