Product Description
Road to the Revolution Mock Trials Project Based Learning Unit (Grades 4-8)

Are you looking for a must-do project for your social studies students?

Bringing history alive is so important and so much fun!

In our classroom, we bring the American Revolution to the present day by putting the Sons of Liberty and the British Red Coats on trial during our classroom 'Mock Trials.' I began this project with the help of a former colleague and mentor and I've kept it going now for 10 years because it's just so amazing to see my students living out the history they've learned from their text books.

Now I want to pass the torch to you because this memorable project is the perfect way to bring excitement and authenticity to your history classroom. Plus, mock trials are an ideal way to hit those Speaking and Listening standards in the Common Core.

Included in this product is the following:

***Ten pages of lesson plans, ideas for implementation and classroom photos

***Eighteen pages of teacher resources to help you organize and successfully implement mock trials in your classroom

***Four, twenty three page attorney case files to set your attorneys and witnesses up for success

Not only will you be amazed at what your students will accomplish during this authentic project, but parents will be in awe when they come to watch the actual trials in your classroom. Your students will be the talk of the school!!

Check out the preview for more details on what this fantastic project based learning opportunity will offer you and your students!!

No more boring social studies for your classroom. Bring history alive with mock trials!!

Enjoy!
