PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Would You Rather Questions: 200 Discussion Starters and Writing Prompts

Perfect for back to school - These intriguing questions will help you get to know your students and help them get to know each other. Kids love them and as you can see below, they make terrific writing prompts and are great for facilitating higher level thinking.

These questions are great for practicing critical thinking because they require your students to evaluate two different, but seemingly equally appealing (or unappealing) options and choose one. One way to use Would you rather... questions is to ask them whenever you have an extra few minutes. You may also want to use the cards at a center, in pairs, or as writing prompts. You will soon find that they become a favorite activity with you students.

When using the questions with the whole class, it can be valuable to have kids first choose by a show of hands and then discuss the question. Ask students to share why they chose one option or another. Then pose the question a second time to allow students the opportunity to choose a different option. This exercise is not only fun, but it also helps kids become more flexible on their thought patterns. Rather than holding onto an idea no matter what, they learn to consider other's opinions. Add a little action to the game by having students move to one part of the room or another depending on their answer.

You can also use the questions for classroom polls. Simply post a question on the white board and have students indicate their answers with their names (magnets work great for this). You can extend the activity with a discussion or by graphing the results.

You could extend the activity by having students create their own Would you rather... questions. Writing Would you rather... questions requires kids to not only create two options, but to also evaluate whether or not those options are roughly equal in appeal. Part of the process is answering the questions, so be sure and give students an opportunity to share their questions with each other.
