Is It Living: The Martian and the Car

Images from 

There's a fun living/non-living scenario at Biology Corner

A quick synopsis:
A martian is sent to Earth to find evidence of life.  He brings back a car.  He's now on trial for not carrying out his duties. 

Have your students take on the roles of Defense Attorney and Prosecuter. 

I worked with a social studies teacher who was very interested in debate and mock trials.  She was always game for teaming up to turn this simple activity into something a little more involved and meaningful for the students.  Maybe you work with someone of a similar personality!
