What Makes a Good Law?

This What Makes a Good Law? lesson plan also includes:

Why were laws created? Spark a group discussion on why we need laws to co-exist. Should the sale of some things be outlawed on Sundays? Read a case summary between Target and the state of Minnesota that debated this issue. Ask your learners to discuss how laws evolve over time. Why are changes necessary? Are they fair? Wrap up the lesson by presenting them with a list of bizarre Sunday laws. For example, "On Sunday in Cicero, Illinois, it is illegal to be humming on the streets."
