Directions provided for the "Take A Stand!" Argumentative Strategy Game.
I have used this with 3rd graders through 12th graders. This is a highly adaptable, fun activity for all students!
This works as an excellent ice breaker activity or warm up in class! It is a way to get students up and talking, as well as listening and responding to each other’s arguments. Even your less outgoing students will appreciate that they do not have to form their OWN opinion for this activity. This takes some of the pressure off the students; they only need to provide arguments for the statement they receive... whether they agree with it or not!
