Crime 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 that Chief Wiggum and Mayor Quimby could implement to improve things in 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."

Abdul and Giles are farmers: How are their lives connected?
Another gem of a mystery from Gary Dawson at Fair 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!)
