One of my favorite annual activities is Character Court! Our students choose a fairy tale to debate and work with a partner to write a script arguing the ethics in that particular scenario. Was is wrong for Goldilocks to break and enter? Did Cinderella's stepmother have mitigating circumstances to explain what she did? Was the Wolf in Little Red Riding Hood just acting in self-defense? These questions and more were answered by our kiddos. We set up like a wax museum around our cafeteria and invited parents to step on the button and start our debates up one by one.
Not the best video quality I know! But we were rushing to get them taped while they were in costume before we had to go set up.
