Mel Gapinski has been murdered! Your students can bring justice for this crime by playing as lawyers and witnesses in this mock trial. The packet includes 6 witness statements, the charging document and stipulations, 4 exhibits including an autopsy report/results of DNA testing, and a simplified rules of evidence. This activity would be great for a law or government class, as a way to encourage writing, or as a way to get deep into forensic evidence in science. Enjoy!
