A woman attends a St. Patrick's Day parade. An unknown person on a float throws a cabbage into the crowd and it hits her in the face. She sues the parade organizers. Should she win?

Tap into your students' curiosity and sense of justice by using this real-life legal case.

Investigation and Discovery lessons allow students to take on the role of investigator. Students are given a little bit of information and tasked with investigating the claim.

  • What witnesses should be interviewed? How are they biased?
  • What evidence should be collected? How will BOTH sides use that evidence?
  • What questions should be asked?

As students work their way through the lesson more and more information is revealed. The lesson concludes with your investigators writing up a report with their findings and a determination of who should win!

Real-life legal cases = Real Drama = Real Student Engagement.
