There is growing interest from teachers at the elementary level in addressing legal topics, concepts and skills with their students. Let’s Talk About Law in Elementary School addresses their need for relevant ideas and materials that can be integrated into the core subjects of social studies, language arts, and science. It also provides information on where to obtain other useful materials for classroom use, as well as law resources to assist them in developing their own classroom materials. The contributors are active in law-related education, either at the public school level, in program administration or at the post-secondary level.
