Mock Trial of Monkey King

Court was in session in the Junior Unit this week.

Monkey King was accused by Jade Emperor with stealing the peaches from the Heavenly Peach Garden. After hearing from many witnesses called by the defense and prosecution, the jury found Monkey King innocent of the charge. Says court reporter Tony R., "This experience is connected to our curriculum in two ways: in our reading of the book [Magical Monkey King] and in our study of persuasive writing."
