mystery - why has Apu opened a vegetarian restaurant?
Look at the
list of statements. List
all the crimes. Decide why Apu has opened his restaurant. Write a plan

Springfield. (Hint – Target hardening and….) from Leah Turner,
Magnus Church of England School, Newark, who
used this with Year 8,
at the end of a unit on crime. The pupils
really enjoyed it and their reasons weren't all the same.
"The end planning exercise wasn't entirely
successful, so we had Kent Brockman interviewing Mayor Quimby again and
we planned questions we would like to be asked and possible responses
the Mayor could offer - this was more successful."

Oak Business and Enterprise College, Rugeley. This mystery could be used in a Crime or
globalisation unit, although at Fair Oak it is used during a
small unit on the Geography of Drugs (which probably gives the
game away!) The link is
