Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
If you are not familiar with foldables you may want to try making one first so that you can demonstrate to your students how to cut the flaps without cutting apart your paper.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Break the students into groups of four. Pass out a card with one of your classroom rules written on it to each group. Have the students work together to create a short skit demonstrating how to follow this particular rule at school.
Continue the discussion by explaining that most rules are created either to help establish and maintain order or to provide safety and security. Refer back to your own classroom rules and have students decide whether the rule is set-up for order or for safety.
Read the book Rules and Laws, by Ann-Marie Kishel (or a similar book that talks about the importance of rules and laws.)
Have the students share with the class some of the rules that they have to follow at home. As the students are sharing rules they have to follow write their ideas on the board or a piece of chart paper so that they can refer back to them later. Ask the students to go home that night and ask their parents what rules (laws) they have to follow in the community.
Give students the Rules and Laws Foldable. They will fold it in half the long way and then unfold the paper and cut along the dotted lines to the fold. They should now have a three flap book. Have students refer to the classroom rules and the board or charts that you have kept track of their ideas on so that they can draw or write 3 rules or laws that they have to follow for each area (home, school, community).
Note: Enter the title of the video in the basic search box when you are on the eMedia site. This video is about 16 minutes long and shows students the reasons why we have some of the safety rules they are asked to follow.
