PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Great fun pack that investigates the types of Pranks, Hoaxes and Scams that are carried out in a variety of circumstances - on the web, in the classroom, in the news and so on.

Students identify the differences and get an understanding that this is not a new thing - it all started with Jonathon Swift (Gulliver Travels).

These pen and paper worksheets explore this type of humor and discusses the impact it might have on the victim. I really enjoy teaching about humor in the classroom and this is another of my packs that my classes have been working on.

I also use the topic to cover off some 'bullying' issues and make sure that all students understand that a prank can often have a negative effect on someone else - and so needs to be avoided.

The pack is also great for introducing the topic of email scams and how they can impact people who are not wary.

********************************************
Understanding humor and when to use it is a true life skill.

I'd be really disappointed if anyone is not happy with these packs, so if that's you, please get back to me and your money will be very happily refunded. I'd really like some feedback too, so all comments most welcome.
