Crime vocabulary storytelling game

Teacher’s instructions: Cut up the cards below and give them out to groups of between two and four students. Students spread the cards out face up on the table and take turns choosing one of the cards to add to their story. The cards must be placed in the order they use them, but they can use the Past Perfect to add them to earlier in the story if they like. The aim is to use all the cards and to finish the story on the last one.
