PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"The Judicial Branch interprets the law." When I say this to my students for the first time, they all have the same blank look on their faces. My students always benefit from a simulation of what it means to "interpret a law." After completing this activity, they have a firm grasp on the importance of interpreting laws and the difficult decisions made by members of the Judicial Branch.

This packet contains 2 introduction pages and 6 scenarios in which students will help "interpret" the law.
