Safeguard: A Law-Related Education Resource Program for Boulder County Schools. Grades 3 and 4.
Designed for third and fourth grade students in Boulder County (Colorado) schools, this manual provides objectives and activities and lists resources for legal education. Four concepts form the focus for Grade 3: understanding how rules are made and why they are necessary, authority and its use and abuse, matching responsibilities with rights, and what vandalism is and its consequences. Suggested content, activities, and resource persons are charted for each concept. Activities include conducting puppet skits, viewing films and filmstrips, writing classroom rules, and making picture dictionaries of legal terms. Grade 4 materials are concerned with making decisions about fairness in school and community situations. Activities include discussions about school rules and consequences if they are broken, interviewing people in authority, viewing and discussing filmstrips, role-playing problems of vandalism, and creating rules for a game. Reproducible materials and a list of resources noted in suggested activities are included. (KC)
