School Punishments 1848

School Punishments from 1848 // Game

Large Groups / The Basics //

In 1848, the Stokes County School had a series of 46 rules for which there were lashes dished out as punishments for various offenses. You can check out the whole list here.

For Youth group, we picked the best 20 rules and displayed them one at a time to the students. We showed the infraction, then we asked each small group to guess how many lashes that offense carried. The range is 1-10, so we just had a representative from each group hold up how many lashes they figured using their fingers.

It was so random that it was difficult for the students to guess. It was hilarious, though!
