Friday, May 15th

Today we discussed the trial about Yertle the Turtle and we each drew a piece of paper from a hat with a character on it whom we would embody in the trial. Mr. G also read to us about the lovely tale of Yertle the Turtle, who wanted to rule over all he could see by stacking his subjects underneath him to form a throne. During the trial on the 19th, Yertle will be put on trial for causing injury to one of his subjects, Sadie. Sadie and her supporters will form the prosecution, and Yertle's supporters will form the defense. The rest of the class consisted of the defense and the prosecution getting together and working on what questions they'll ask and such.

Sorry this is late....
