In this theme we will begin by learning a lot of words that has to with crime, and more specifically with law and punishment. We will also see a documentary about Rodney King, and talk about riots spreading, all the way to Sweden. After about two weeks this will lead us into novel reading: "Holes" which is a book about boys being sent to a correctional facility and/or other crime fiction.
