PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

When your upper elementary or middle school students turn your school into a rumor mill… use this activity to help them squash the gossip!

Fan-and-pick is a Kagan structure that promotes collaborative learning. This product is a set of gossip/rumor scenarios and job mats for playing this activity. There are a set of open ended "What would you do?" scenario cards and also a set where I've added in multiple choice options. Specific directions and blank cards also included.

What is Fan-and-Pick? It is essentially a structured way for small groups to answer questions. Each group has four jobs that rotate after each scenario.
• Fan: Fan the cards out and say "Pick a card, any card!"
• Pick: Select a card and read it out loud.
• Answer: Answer the question!
• Respond: "I agree because...." or "I disagree because..."

The scenario cards could also work great with SCOOT!

Scenarios are upper elementary specific and are meant for students to practice:
• Minding their own business.
• Not believing something just because someone else said it.
• Choosing not to gossip.
