Crime Scene Investigation!


Crime scene props: 
Masking tape to create an outline of a dead body, 
murder weapon, 
Police "do not cross" tape, 
various other clues - photos, money, wallet etc.

How It Works:

You need to create a murder scene; As students come in, ask them to piece together the clues to create a written narrative explaining how the scene happened.

This helps them explore the concept of narrative and promotes creative thinking/writing.


Give them connective cards and get them to practice using connectives to tell the story behind the murder.

Can be used in English as a stimulus for creative writing, MFL for the same or to practise speaking skills, 

History - you could recreate a crime scene from another century to explore it in depth, Law...?
