This document on understanding attitudes and feelings toward rules, laws, authority, and citizenship responsibility is intended as an aid to kindergarten teachers as they develop and implement a crime resistance program. The unit is part of a K-eighth grade project designed to promote and maintain positive student attitudes and behavior, to assist students in meeting their responsibilities, and to help them insure their own and other people's safety and welfare. Specific objectives of this kindergarten component are to help students examine personal feelings, understand the concept of responsibility, seek positive solutions to conflict, deal with strangers, learn names and addresses, learn what to do when lost, and view the police officer as a helper. Activities suggested to help meet these objectives include role playing, producing art projects, discussing issues in class, creating home and school responsibility charts, playing educational games, and participating in a traffic light game based on creative movement. For each activity, information is presented on the purpose, materials, and reinforcement questions. Student worksheets are provided wherever necessary. The unit concludes with a student reading list, a resource directory, and a glossary of terms. (DB)
