Does suffering have a value?

Does suffering have a value?

This is a useful worksheet where pupils can mark their responses to a series of statements. They're ususally quite happy to complete activities like this, I find. You can then follow it up by asking them to write about what they agreed with/disagreed with most.

Abortion - the development of a foetus

Abortion - the development of a foetus

This is a 'game' to be used when introducing abortion. The week chart needs to be enlarged to A3 ( and ideally laminated) and placed in a long line on the floor/tables. The stages of development need to be cut up and given out to students. They then have to guess when each thing happens. You can then add the UK abortion limit and religious views as needed.
