5th Grade Mock Trial
Students were reminded of the traditional story about “The Three Little Pigs” and then read another version based on the wolf’s point of view called, “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!”. After discussing the fact that there is always more than one side or point of view to every situation, students participated in the mock trial of “B.B. Wolf vs. Curly Pig”. As the jury, students had to decide if Curly Pig was guilty of causing all of the turmoil.
After the trial, students began their persuasive writing assignment creating their own version of this classic tale. They had to chose whether to be the wolf or pig, and write their final piece from the character’s point of view.
