General

Get to know your students with a fun game of "Would you rather...?" Students can come up to the board and drag an emoji to the box of their choice.

Use this activity as an ice breaker during the first days of school, a brain break, if you have a few extra minutes of class, or even as writing prompts. These "Would you rather?" prompts are great for building community, building language, and helping students think critically and choose between two equally appealing (or unappealing) options!

Questions include:
● Would you rather be five years older or three years younger?
● Would you rather eat the same meal every day or listen to the same song for the rest of your life?
● Would you rather be able to speak all languages or speak to animals?

Customize this activity and add your own "Would you rather?" questions or have your students write their own, making sure that both options are equal in appeal.

Standards

Learning objective

Students will be able to evaluate two options and choose one.

Teaching tips

Have your students communicate their thoughts and ideas by sharing why they chose one option over the other. Do any students want to change their minds after listening to other classmates' reasoning?

Get students moving by having them move to one side of the room or the other depending on their choice.
