History

Tuesday 12th January 2021

L.I. To introduce the broad trends of crime and punishment from the Romans to the 21st Century. 

 

Use the PowerPoint to answer these questions: 

  • What kind of crimes do we have today? How do we detect and/or prevent crime nowadays, and how do we punish it? Read the suggestions on the PowerPoint slides (Slide 2 & 3). 
  • Slide 4 - Look at the timeline displaying the different periods in history we will be looking at over the next few weeks. What do you think life was like in some of the times? What might have been crimes committed/punishments received during these times?
  • Slide 7 - Do you know what each of these words means? Match some of the main vocabulary you will come across in this unit with the correct definition, then check on Slide 8. 

 

Activities - Choose one of the following:

Red Task

Use the 'Sorting Cards' to try to match up the crime, how it was detected and the punishment. Stick these in the right place on the worksheet (1A). 

 

Amber Task

Use the 'Sorting Cards' to try to match up the crime, how it was detected and the punishment. Stick these in the right place on the worksheet, then write a sentence about crime and punishment in each of the time periods (1B). 

 

Green Task

Use the 'Sorting Cards' to try to match up the crime, how it was detected and the punishment. Stick these in the right place on the worksheet (1C). When finished, write a paragraph about how crime and punishment have changed or stayed the same over time. 

 

Final thoughts before next week's lesson:

  • Are you surprised that theft is the majority of crime throughout time? 
  • Do you think the punishment of transportation to Australia or America was better than the death penalty?
  • Are you surprised that execution was only banned in Britain in 1965? Can you think of somewhere today that still executes criminals?
