Social Studies Now!: Put Storybook Characters on Trial to Spark Students' Interest in the Justice System.
Lindquist, Tarry
Instructor (Primary), v107 n5 p82 Jan-Feb 1998
This social studies activity helps primary students understand the trial process by putting literary characters on trial (e.g., Goldilocks for breaking and entering or Cruella DeVille for stealing dalmatians). Alternatively, students can try real-life problems such as bullying on the playground. Through role playing, students learn how the justice system works. (SM)
