Product Description
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.

Bad Luck? takes students through the process of investigation and discovery. Students will chose witnesses, determine what evidence needs to be collected, and what questions need to be asked to determine who should win this case.

As students work through the exercise more information is presented:
- Every year people on the parade floats toss out cabbages. The cabbages are considered to be good luck and people want to catch them.
-The person on the float threw the cabbage like a baseball.
-The woman sustained very serious injuries and needed multiple surgeries.

As students learn more information they can piece together the story, ask more questions, and finally make a well-reasoned determination in the case!

This year don't just pass out a St. Patrick's Day crossword puzzle or busy work! Engage your learners in fun and rigorous critical thinking!
