Hundreds of millions of children spend their
childhood working and do not have an opportunity to
play, go to school, or live in a healthy environment.

– Steve McCurry

    1. What are you thoughts about the above quote?
    That the children don’t go to school or get to play.

    2. Look at the pictures below, what do you observe?
    The children don’t look very happy with what they are doing. They look tired.

    3. What questions do you have about the pictures and the children working so young?
    Is it a cultural belief that every child has to work like that? In which countries do they do that?

    4. What can you infer about the children’s lives?
    I infer that they might not like doing it.
