YCJA0207 – Legal Rights: Rules and Laws

(Intended For: Elementary Grade Level) This document contains student pages and a teacher’s edition of the same pages. The questions guide students through the purpose and rationale of rules and laws. Students are directed to look for rules around them and ask questions about them. Who makes them? What is their purpose? What are fair consequences? Students also discuss what makes a good rule and have an opportunity to make and test their own rules.
