The Inbestigators: The Case of the Suspect Sprinkler
The Case of the Suspect Sprinkler
Season 1  |  Episode 11  |  ABC Me  |  July 1, 2019

When the timer on Mrs Maniaci's sprinkler system is tampered with before the Garden of the Year competition, the Inbestigators must track down the culprit.

Lesson Theme: Blame
Mrs Maniaci is so upset about her garden being flooded she immediately accuses others of sabotage when it was, in fact, done accidentally by Amelia.

Turn and talk; In a group of two or three, share with each other a time when you accidentally blamed the wrong person for doing something. How do you think anger and other strong emotions affect our ability to think calmly about a situation? Have you ever jumped to a conclusion then realised you were wrong?

Write down five strategies for calming down when you are feeling stressed or angry.

Extension activity: In a pair or a small group, use the Internet to research some physical actions for calming down and relaxing eg; belly breaths, sitting in the lotus position, then film a tutorial using software such as i-movie demonstrating the actions for others to learn.
