This is a printable set of idea cards; to start brains working to think critically and evaluate between the choices. Would you rather? With a holiday, Christmas theme. They can be a fun activity for your literacy center.
These should encourage critical thinking and discussion.
I always ask for discussion and justification for the final decision.
These can be used as time-fillers, if you have some to spare; prompts for group discussions; debate topics; writing starters; impromptu speech topics etc
Students seem to enjoy the “choice” aspect and develop great debating, critical thinking and speaking skills.
I’ve included a graphic organizer if you wish to use it. I copy and give to students if I’m using the cards for a writing or debating task. It helps them organize their thoughts.
I do have other stories, if you need.
