Yesterday 7 Rebecca turned our classroom into a colonial Australia courtroom. We had prepared our speeches, practiced persuasive language, brought in our costumes and were ready to go! We had poor convicts sitting on the floor and in jail and the rich got the nice seats up the back, in their fancy dresses. We had a female judge and legal counsel, to celebrate International Women’s Day, even though we know women could not be judges back then.
Unfortunately we had a couple of people away, but we still had a great time! It was a fun way to practice our persuasive language, and to learn about how laws used to be created. Soon we will move onto how laws are created today, and even create our own society, using any type of government and laws we want!
