Argument for and against the death penalty

Read this 

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/15007511

 

Watch this:

https://www.bing.com

 

Have a look at the statements below and decide if they make you feel that they are for the death penalty being reintroduced or against?

 

The very small chance of executing the wrong person is balanced by the benefits to society of putting off other murderers.

 If someone murders someone else, they have given up their human rights, including the one to stay alive themselves.

The punishment should 'fit the crime' - if you have killed someone, you should be killed too.

Giving a killer the death sentence will stop them - and others - doing it again.

Mistakes are sometimes made in the law - what if someone is killed who is actually innocent?

The death penalty goes against our most basic human right - the right to life.

No-one has ever proven with numbers that killing murderers stops other people committing similar crimes.

At least 1 in 25 people sentenced to the death penalty in the U.S are innocent.

Since 1973, 144 people on death row have been exonerated.

Over 2/3 of the countries (144) in the world have abolished the death penalty.

Data shows that states in America the 14 states that do not have the death penalty have lower murder rates.

Death penalty cases cost 3 times more than non-death penalty cases. $3 million per case.

NEARLY 60 per cent of criminals ­given short sentences will commit at least one serious offence within the first year of release

Being killed by lethal injection or being electrocuted is not always smooth and painless, sometimes it causes a painful death.

Giving a killer the death sentence will stop them - and others - doing it again.

It costs £65,000 to imprison a person in this country once police, court costs and all the other steps are taken into account. After that it costs a further £40,000 for each year they spend incarcerated.

 

Tasks

 

Decide which argument you agree with. Try to persuade someone in your house that you are right. Don’t forget to back up your argument with facts.

Write a paragraph explaining your decision - don’t forget the evidence.

Science ideas linking with Light and How we see

 

  • How the eye works

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zf9c87h watch this short video to see how the eye works

  • Look in the mirror and see if you can identify any parts of it: pupil, cornea, iris. What happens to your pupil when you go into a bright room or dark room? What do you notice?

 

  • Could you draw a simple diagram to show how you could see an apple on a tree outside?

 

  • Can you talk to someone about these statements – are they right? How can you explain your answer?:

We won’t be able to see anything if there is no light in the woods

We will be able to see a little in the dark when our eyes adjust to it.

 

  • Exploring reflection and refraction:

Challenge:

CAN YOU MAKE THE LIGHT BEAM FROM A TORCH HIT A DIFFERENT TARGET WITHOUT MOVING THE TORCH?

 

If you face forward and point a torch, can you make the light beam turn to the right? Left? Behind you?  What might you need to help you?

 

This challenge above is like the job a periscope does.

Could you explore how a periscope works and explain it to someone.

 

If you would like you can use this link to make your own periscope using tin foil

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xx9dbl4PJyE

 

  • Shadows

 

Using scientific vocab: opaque, translucent, transparent, object, light source, light ray – can you explain to someone in your household how shadow is formed.

 

Go and look outside on a sunny day, go out at different times during the day and  make a shadow diary about what you notice.

 

Take out a small object, place it on a piece of paper, draw around the shadow it makes and label the time. Repeat this every hour and see what happens to the shadow of the object throughout the day. Can you explain this to somone.
