‘Would You Rather...?’ questions prompt students to evaluate options and make choices, so they are useful for encouraging critical thinking skills. To make this thinking visible, students can share their justifications or reasons for their choices. Some cards result in lots of laughs and some in furrowed brows, but they all generate lots of discussion!

This resource contains 36 unique ‘Would You Rather...?’ cards based on Greek Mythology. They reveal the values and events of many myths, and are a great introduction or review of the stories.
Print the cards onto thick paper before dividing them into 4s. I recommend you use the ‘fit to page’ option, but if you have any difficulties, please get in touch with me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Place the cards face down in a pile in front of a team of students. They take turns to lift a card and discuss the options, before explaining what they’d choose and why.
Put students in pairs. They turn over a card and write down their choices with reasons. They also try to predict what their partners would do and get extra bonus points if they can work out the reasons too.
The teacher reads a card aloud and students move to one side of the room or the other, depending on their response. They then discuss why they have chosen that option with those around them.
Once students understand the concept, ask them to create their own cards using the template provided at the end of the pack.
