Engage your students while they practice their critical thinking and communication skills in a fun and exciting way. This "Would You Rather?" activity will interest them in their study of ancient India.
There are 19 "Would You Rather?" scenarios in task card format. I have done this activity three ways. One way is to simply read the scenario and have the students move to the side of the room that fits their choice. I will then call on a few students to justify their opinion. This is a great way to get kids up and out of their seats. The second option is to have students work in partners or small groups and ask each other the questions. This strategy works for early finishers or as enrichment. Thirdly, you can use these questions as bellringers and have your students explain their answers in a journal or as an admit slip.
