About Our Crime and Punishment Worksheets
Here at BusyTeacher, we like to provide you with lots of choices and variety so welcome to the crime and punishment section of the site. It is not an obvious ESL topic but there still are 75 FREE worksheets available that you might consider using in class. This activity is for upper intermediate students who need to practice modal verbs. There are excellent instructions included with the worksheet but you are going to have to take some time beforehand to talk about crime related vocabulary such as forgery so that students understand the questions they are being asked. If this is not an appropriate topic or level for your students, there are many to choose from including word searches and other discussion activities.
While not a common ESL topic, crime and punishment can be interesting especially in adult discussion classes because everybody has a slightly different opinion when it comes to issues related to this. Some schools may deem this a controversial and inappropriate topic so be sure to get approval before introducing anything in class. With lower level learners, you may want to introduce vocabulary words such as jail, steal, and policeman. You can use these words in activities related to predictions or when studying the “If ~, then ~.” sentence structure. As with most topics, you simply have to choose material that suits the level of your students to ensure that everything goes smoothly and students understand the lesson.
