Would you rather? This is a set of Valentine's Day activity idea cards; to start brains working to think critically and evaluate between the choices to make decisions. They can also be an activity for your February literacy centers.
These should encourage critical thinking and discussion for most age groups as half the cards are supported by images
, the others rely solely on text.
Always ask for discussion and justification
for the final decision.
These can be used as time-fillers, if you have some to spare; prompts for group discussions; debate topics; writing starters; impromptu speech topics etc
Students seem to enjoy the “choice” aspect and develop great debating, critical thinking and speaking skills.
I use with younger students as discussion starters or debate topics. This gets the children used to justifying their choices and ideas.
I’ve included a graphic organizer if you wish to use it. I copy and give to students if I’m using the cards for a writing or debating task. It helps them organize their thoughts.
I do have other stories, if you need.
