Foreign Language - Latin

This week we learned the phrase, amicus curiae, meaning friend of the court.

A friend of the court is an expert who comes into the court and gives background information that the court may need for the case. The person is not involved in the case in any way.

Pretend that you are an amicus curiae. In Latin, list 5 things that you could be called into the court to tell them about.

Use your dictionary or look up Latin words online to describe your expertise.

Be creative and be fun. :)
