Fairy Tale Trial

Last week, our sixth graders presented a case, Goldilocks Vs The Three Bears, to their entire grade, who also helped serve as their jury.  Students prepared and researched all the necessary elements of a trial including legal arguments, opening and closing statements, and questions for the witnesses. During preparation for their trial they also got a surprise visit from our county's justice court judge. During this visit, Judge Curry shared his duties as a judge and assisted students with their case.

Our Rocketeers did a fabulous job of researching and getting into character for their trial. Have a look at some clips from our trial below.
