This is one of my students' favorite activities of the year! Pick this lesson if you want students to still be talking about it years later. In this trial simulation, students take on individual roles and place King Louis XVI on trial. Prepare to be amazed at your students critical thinking skills and their ability to argue or defend their point.
With this activity, you are getting individualized roles for each of your students with specific directions for each. I have also included a teacher directions page, to answer any questions you might have in conducting this trial with your students.
This activity on the French Revolution is truly engaging and brings the history alive to the students. For more like this, check out my store: Orchard Social Studies
