The human barometer
Students read the story: 9-year-old girl dies on railway line. They engage in the 'Human Barometer': Collect a range of names of dangerous activities from the class. For example: skateboarding, waterskiing, bungee jumping, climbing, playing near railway lines etc. Students include examples of drug use. They label one side of the classroom 'Very risky' and the other 'Very safe'.
