Product Description
This is a critical thinking assignment that allows students to explore multiple perspectives. It includes a jigsaw component, role-play, research, and critical inquiry. My students LOVED this, and have been asking me ever since when we can do another one. I have done this with grades 5-7, and adjusted the depth of information required to suit their abilities. It could work with even higher grades if you wanted to incorporate more about the economy and such.

Students are given a case study involving a law suit over clear-cut logging in a traditional hunting ground. Students are given a specific role, either a judge, logger, or first nation representative.

Students must explore the issue through researching their case study, as well as online or in a textbook. They then create a strong argument for why they should be granted rights to the land. Students then duke it out in a mock trial, and the judge(s) decide the final verdict.

This package includes:
- Brief instructions on how to run the trial
- Pre-activity worksheet to identity pros and cons of logging
- Pre-activity worksheet to explore issue from multiple perspectives
- Research charts for all roles (Judges, Loggers, First Nations)
- Case study
- Instructions for participants
- Examples for participants and/or teachers
