Dr. Seuss Mock Trials

Dr. Seuss Mock Trials

Ever wanted your students to argue about something that will also teach them? What about taking a Dr. Seuss character to trial! Your students will be arguing about whether or not the Cat-in-the-Hat actually burglarized Sally's home or whether Horton committed kidnapping! It is perfect for motivating students to learn about persuasion, text evidence, inference, and debate. This unit contains a teacher guide, step by step pages for the students to think about: What is a criminal charge Prosecution vs. Defense How to show evidence Debating with a fair and balanced argument How to ask proper questions It also includes a complete script for students to fill in that shows a basic understanding of how a courtroom trial runs. The script follows actual procedures but adds a flair of "Seuss-like" dialogue. You will not be disappointed in the results of these mock trials.
