Product Description
As a culminating exercise to The Trial unit of study, the students are asked to participate in the court proceedings of Bruno Hauptmann. They are separated into legal teams: the prosecution and the defense. As a legal team, they will build their case to help the judge (you) determine whether or not the original guilty verdict should be upheld.

This packet includes:
-Teacher's Guide
-Project Explanation handout
-Legal Teams document
-Role Expectations handout
-Court Format outline
-Approved Sources document
-Trial Prep worksheets for students
-Legal Brief worksheet for students
-Notes sheet
-Project Rubric for Oral Arguments
-Extras: Name Badges and Signs for Tables

This activity is not meant to teach the elements or procedures in an actual court proceeding or debate. While some aspects/terminology may be accurate, other components have been altered to fit the needs of this particular activity.

Also, while this is intended to be used as a novel study, it could easily be adapted to be used in a Social Studies classroom as the novel is simply used as a source that students may use to find information.
