Product Description

When your upper elementary or lower middle school students turn your school into a rumor mill… use this activity to help them squash the gossip! It's also a great companion activity to Julia Cook's "Rumor Has It", Madonna's "Mr. Peabody's Apples", or Liz Rosenberg's "What James Said" (specific discussion questions included for each of these stories).

This resource includes a set of 20 "What would you do?" gossip/rumor scenarios. You can use them for "Pick a card!", "Scatter", or "Mingle-Partner-Chat"; all awesome cooperative learning structures. Directions are included for all three activities (see more details in the preview!).

Scenarios are meant for students to practice:

• Minding their own business.

• Not believing something just because someone else said it.

• Choosing not to gossip.

This resource also includes 3 different exit tickets and a "words of wisdom" sign to leave behind in classrooms (or hang in your office). This lesson is ASCA and CASEL aligned and a complete lesson plan is included.
