This is a set of idea cards; to entertain students at the end of the school year. Encourage them to think critically and evaluate between the choices. Would you rather? with the theme of Summer and End of School Year.
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.
They can also be an activity for your literacy center.
I’ve included 8 image-based tasks, with their own individual writing a justification worksheet.
There are also;
* 55 black ink tasks
* 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
* a task recording sheet
I do have other End of School items
