I developed this resource a long time ago - but it stands the test of time and still scares the daylights out of my year 9 students!
I have not been able to upload the audio track that supports the power point due to copyright restrictions but… if you are able to then download a copy of ‘The Nobodies’ by Marilyn Manson and tell power point to start playing the track on slide one and finish at the end so that the music plays over the slides.
If you do this then you will note that the music and the text on the slides are timed to work together.
This makes an excellent starter lesson to the topic. When students have watched it through once ask them to re-watch the PPT but this time they need to note down:
- The names of all the murder victims
- The name of the detective assigned to the case
- Any key details about each murder that they think would merit further investigation.
