Handouts for implementing a Mock Trial
Classroom simulations/role plays are excellent tools to enhance student achievement and increase classroom motivation. As educators, we believe in the power of active learning in the classroom. As a result, we have spent many years creating activities that require active learning in the classroom and have had incredible results. Students come back year after year and always remember the skits, mock trials, reader’s theaters, games, and simulations that have occurred within our classroom.
This packet is for 19 student handouts and 3 answer keys for implementing a mock trial. They are general strategies, terms, procedures, role plays, and scripts that can be used in the classroom for any topic. The packet includes the following student handouts:
Legal Terms practice sheets A & B with answer keys
Legal Terms quiz with answer key
Role play activities for Opening Statements, Objections, and Closing Statements
Objections and examples of charges
Courtroom “Script” with Opening and Closing Remarks
We will be adding more simulation and active learning activities on this store in the future. Please “follow” us and keep an eye out for exciting activities.
