Get kids thinking outside the box and think about justice and acceptance by having your students determine what they think is just.

Why use Just or Unjust - A Civics Sorting Activity? Children need to learn to think for themselves about what is right. This activity will get the children thinking and defending their thinking.

How it works: Here's an activity based on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his peaceful protests on what is unjust. Children will sort statements according to what they feel is just and unjust. There are no right or wrong answers, merely opinions.

What's included: This resource has 24 situations where the children discuss and decide what is just and what is unjust. Beware, this might lead to some passionate conversations!

A great conversation starter!
