Lesson Ideas

Lesson Idea 1 (for junior school teachers):
  • Stick one of our stickers on the reverse side of each school ruler (go to our free downloads). This is a good idea as there is an association between rulers and obeying rules.
  • Display our posters within classrooms to reinforce the importance of obeying rules (go to our free downloads).
  • Hand out our bookmark rulers to pupils to reinforce the importance of obeying rules (go to free downloads). Ask each pupil to write your school rules on the reverse side of each bookmark ruler you hand out (and consider entering our annual SCHOOL RULES PRIZE award).
Lesson Idea 2 (for junior school teachers):
  • Talk with your class about the need to be in good relationship with one another and what it takes to live in good relationship with one another (i.e. good conduct towards people, place and planet).
  • Help pupils compile a listing of top 10 good conduct suggestions. The ranking of your suggestions is not important.
  • Compile and submit your class listing of top 10 good conduct suggestions so it can be published and shared with others on this website (published here).
Lesson Idea 3 (for junior school teachers):
  • Talk with your class about the need for rules to encourage good conduct and discourage anti-social behaviours.
  • Talk with your class about the need for rules in sport, road safety, hygiene, recycling etc and the need for school rules.
  • Test your class on their knowledge of your school rules.
Lesson Idea 4 (for junior school teachers):
  • Use a height chart or stadiometer height measurement device to measure the height of each child in your class.
  • Ask pupils to calculate the mean average class height (the mean average height is the sum total of all heights divided by the number of class pupils).
  • Ask pupils to calculate the median height by arranging the pupil heights in ascending order (the median height is the pupils height with equal heights greater and lesser within the ascending list of heights/ if an even number of pupils the median will be midway between the two middle heights).
  • Ask pupils to determine the mode height (the mode height is the most frequently occurring height in the ascending list of heights).
Lesson Idea 5 (for senior school English teachers):

Request your class pupils to write essays on the subject of good conduct with titles such as:
  • Discuss how good conduct increases public well-being by using three examples...
  • Discuss how anti-social behaviours decreases public well-being by using three examples...
  • Discuss the need for rule setting and adherence and discuss what happens without rule setting and adherence...
  • Discuss the difference between personal well-being and public well-being and how sometimes personal well-being needs to be subject to public well-being.
