Jury Duty worksheets

Jury Duty worksheets

I created these worksheets to support my lessons on Ancient Greece and how they influenced modern day democracy but these sheets could be used as stand alone lessons. Included: Sheet with information on the alleged crime and those involved. There has been an alleged robbery at a man’s house. He has accused his neighbour of committing the crime. The accused’s alibi is his best friend , Sid, who has been to prison before. Who will you believe? Jurors: Three jurors all of who know one of the people involved. This sheet will help the children to understand the need for an unbiased jury. Children will discuss the jurors and decide whether or not to keep them on the jury Questionnaire: I used this with a colleague who had experienced jury duty. They came into our lesson and the children used the questions on this sheet to interview them on their experience. Statements: Brief statements from the three people involved. Children can use these to help form their opinions on the accused. Verdict/Truth: Most children I have used this lesson with come to the conclusion that Mark (the accused) is guilty. They are always surprised to know that he was set up by the man who accused him. The children find out that even if Mark was guilty, he would more than likely have walked free due to lack of evidence. This always ignites interesting conversations about how fair our legal system is.

Barrister Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Careers Legal Law Jobs

Barrister Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Careers Legal Law Jobs

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Barristers'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
