This is a game I use in ERC where expressing an opinion is a competancy. This is a good game to get students talking and not arguing. They can be persuasive or simply say what they think.
How to play:
Have students stand in the middle of an empty space. They will be moving to one side of the room/space or another. There must be an empty middle ground to demonstrate the 2 "stands".
Begin with everyone in the middle. Ask the first question and gesture which side represents which answer. Begin with an easy question like "which is better cats or dogs?" then show one side of the room for each. Once the students have moved - they must Take a Stand and choose a side, no "it depends on..". Then you invite people to say why they chose that side.
Students may change their minds after hearing a student give their opinion if they want. Once you have heard enough explanations from both sides, the students re-group in the middle and the next question is asked.
These cards cover many ages and some may not be appropriate for younger students. You know your class and may judge accordingly.

The pages are 3x5 card sized already.
