PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I love this activity! It can be used as a quick warmer at any time to put a smile on the students’ faces and really get their brains going! I give the student 2 minutes to “read” the first slide out loud or alternatively I ask them to time themselves reading the colours in out loud as quickly as possible. I then show them the second slide, where they have to say the colour each word is written in in and challenge them to complete this in 2 minutes of beat their first time – they never do! Then I ask for volunteers to show off how fabulous they are or I pounce on an unsuspecting “volunteer”! Enjoy!

Stroop test definition: In psychology, the Stroop effect is a demonstration of interference in the reaction time of a task. When the name of a color (e.g., "blue", "green", or "red") is printed in a color not denoted by the name (e.g., the word "red" printed in blue ink instead of red ink), naming the color of the word takes longer and is more prone to errors than when the color of the ink matches the name of the color. The effect is named after John Ridley Stroop, who first published the effect in English in 1935.
