Lesson four focuses on the principles of justice and the role of the judiciary. By following a young girl as she tries to recover her stolen bicycle, the narrative provides a context for understanding the process of resolving a conflict from negotiations to trial. In all the lesson activities, students are gaining practice in examining and discussing issues from different viewpoints before rendering a decision. As an extension activity, student groups can develop and perform their own mock trials based on familiar fairy tales or fables.
