Fifth Grade Mock Trial

What better way to learn about the justice system than to participate in it?  That's what our fifth graders did in the case of the State of Nurseryland vs Roy L. Kingsman.  Did Mr. Kingsman cause Humpty Dumpty to fall off the wall?  Taking the roles of judge, jury, prosecutor, defendant, defense counsel, baliff, and key witnesses, the students learned first hand how our justice system works.  The students learned important life lessons as well - can someone else make us feel and act a certain way?  Media coverage of the case provided by the fifth graders.
