I cannot recommend this activity enough! This is a fantastic role-playing activity that will make your class their favorite. Students are lawyers, witnesses, and jury members. They put Columbus, his men, the King and Queen of Spain, European Society, and European Diseases on trial for the destruction and death of the Taino Native Americans whom Columbus first encountered in 1492. I have included everything you need here, including some notes of suggestions for you. I created and evolved this activity over years. To me it is worth hundreds of dollars, but I imagine it would not sell at that price.
