This is a structured activity that allows students a chance to share their opinions on a variety of different controversial topics (of the teachers choice). Students work in pairs to rotate around the class to various topics, share their opinions, and see the opinions of their peers. This is a great activity that allows quieter students a chance to voice their opinions without having to express it in front of the whole class. Included with this purchase is a teacher instructions and preparation sheet, a list of topics that can be used, a sheet for student responses, and an individual student reflection sheet. All documents are in PDF form.
This is a great activity that can be used at any point during the year that gets kids moving, thinking, and discussing. It could be used as an introduction to a larger study of of diversity or varying opinions, or just as a fun day of discussions.
