Do you need an activity that discusses the main concepts of Operant conditioning?
If so, we've got what you are looking for!
This activity includes:
1) A colorful and engaging graphic activity that first asks your students about the key concepts of operant conditioning. Students will be asked about topics including: shaping, punishments, the operant chamber, Thorndike's Law of Effects, and positive and negative reinforcers.
The next section of the activity gives students three pages of practice deciphering between scenarios that are either classical or operant conditioning. Students will be asked questions about the scenario to help them understand the important features of the two different types of learning. In the last page of these scenarios, students will be asked to identify classical or operant and then if classical they identify the US, UR, CS and CR. If it is operant they will identify the type of reinforcer. Once completed, your students will have a mastery of the two different types of learning.
This activity can be used in many different ways in the classroom. Students can work independently, in pairs or this activity can be used as a jigsaw in order to facilitate a class wide discussion about the topics discussed in the activity.
2) A detailed answer key to the lesson activity to save you time and help guide student comprehension.
This activity can also be found in a bundle paired with a PowerPoint, Keynote and PDF version of a fully customizable lecture found here:
