This year provide your students with a Halloween activity that fosters critical thinking and teach them to think like a lawyer.
thinkLaw brings strategies taught in law school all the way to our youngest learners! In Hansel and Gretel: Making and Evaluating Tough Decisions students analyze the decisions made by Hansel, Gretel, the woodcutter, and the witch. They all have problems. How could they solve them? Were the decisions they made the BEST decisions they could have made?
- Evaluate tough decisions
- Analyze the outcome of those decisions
- Brainstorm problem-solving solutions
- Create a new ending to the classic tale that would reflect better decision-making from the characters
The lesson is fun and engaging and best of all helps students to develop critical thinking skills and dispositions!
