Dinnae be in the Dark

These interactive videos are where you will learn the facts about knife crime in black and white. You’ll hear from someone who knows all the right answers for all the wrong reasons and find out just how sharp you are on knife crime.

Start by...

Introduce the topic by explaining that we are going to watch a series of videos that ask us how well we know the facts on knife crime and the law. You can have different voting areas in the room that people move to or you can do a show of hands. Each video lasts around 1 minute.

Middle bit...

Play the videos. When a question is asked, see which answer is the most popular and go with it. See where it leads you to as a group and discuss as you go.

End by...

Ask the group if they were surprised by any of the facts. Reinforce that it's important to know about the facts, your rights and the law because you never know when you'll be in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is making the right decisions that are important. They've made the right choice just to be part of this group and take part in this activity.
