You know the story of the Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs. You know what the wolf did. You know that if the wolf were tried for his crimes, that he would surely be guilty. Well, here's an activity that will shed doubt on your previous convictions. After all the evidence has been presented, you'll question whether the wolf is really guilty or merely a victim of wolf prejudice and circumstantial evidence. This clever simulation, which teaches about the workings of the trial system, puts the Big Bad Wolf on trial for destroying the pigs' houses. By assuming roles and using the non-scripted character profiles, students present information that has you wondering if the wolf is guilty or innocent. A jury of classmates will decide. The book not only teaches about the judicial system, but also develops communication, cooperation, and evaluative skills. For more judicial activities see Step into the Courtroom and Jury Trials in the Classroom. Grades 4 to 6
