Summary: This activity provides an opportunity for students to explore how rules and laws are written and interpreted. Strategies for writing a good rule/law are emphasized and scenarios examined to determine what a rule/law really means.


  • Students will learn about the qualities of a good rule.  Is it clear?  Can it be followed?  Is it fair?  Is there a consequence for breaking it?  Is it reasonable?
  • Students will apply a rule to a set of scenarios.
  • Students will understand the difficulty involved in interpreting laws.
