  A teacher in the United States wanted her class of seven-year- olds to understand what it felt like to be discriminated against. Here is what she did.

  The class was divided into two groups- blue-eyed children and brown-eyed children. The class was told that the blue –eyed children were more intelligent and generally superior to the brown- eyed children. The blue-eyed children then put the collars around the neck of the brown-eyed children to make the difference more obvious.  The collars were kept on in school.

 During the day the blue-eyed children were given privileges. They could sit at the front of the class and go to break and lunch first. They were praised , too. The blue-eyed children felt superior and aggressive. The brown-eyed children felt unhappy and  wanted revenge.

  The next day, the teacher told the children that she had lied. The blue-eyed children weren’t really superior- it was the brown- eyed children who were superior. The collars were put  on the blue-eyed children and they lost their privileges to the brown-eyed children.

The children became more aggressive, there was name-calling and a fight between two boys. The teacher noticed that the children with the collars found their work more difficult. They explained that they couldn’t work because they were unhappy.

  At the end of the second day the teacher explained what she had done. The children talked about their feelings.’’ I felt a dog a dog on a lead’’, said one  day boy. One of the girls said she felt as if she was in prison. Once the collars were removed, the children became lively, friendly and happy .

On July 4, 1776, a group of rebels representing the Thirteen British colonies on the Atlantic ocean coast in North America signed a document.

Lapland is not a recognized country. It is a large area north of the Arctic Circle made up of sections of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. It has no government of its own.
