Activity Time: one week
Concepts Taught: critical thinking

After reading the book or viewing the movie, have the students set up a mock trial. The students must decide if George committed murder.

Discusss legal terms and court procedures before students begin working on their trial preparation.

In past years I have invited a local judge to hear the case. I invite other classes to be the jury.
