Students become the "jurors" in this mock trial of The Three Little Pigs Vs. Alexander T. Wolf. They will analyze several versions of the story, research the plausability of facts presented in the case, make a judgement based on the facts, and persuade fellow "jurors" of their decision.


It is late and the small town of Away-from-Home is buzzing with action. The flashing red and blue lights of the local sherriff's cruiser reveal a horrible scene. Two houses, one made of straw and the other made of sticks, lie in shamble by the roadside. A third house, made of bricks, is surrounded by police cars. One thing is for certain, something big has happened and soon the world will demand to know the truth of it.
