Product Description
This is one of my favorite activities. I loves me some controversy. For this activity, students stand up and move to different parts of the room to respond to various controversial statements. It gets the class moving, engaged and arguing on the first day of civics. My students report it is one of their favorite activities as well. The final task is a short writing piece that you can use to assess students writing levels as well as political interests.

The powerpoint itself is a series of controversial statements. I supplied more than I would use so you can use it for your specific class needs.
