We are going to try something new today. It’s called a Place Mat activity.
This activity makes sure that everyone has a chance to say something about a chosen topic, and that everyone’s contribution can be considered for when you formulate the Group Idea.
This activity also allows for people who had misunderstandings about a concept to realize what they were when the group shares of ideas. It also allows for new ways of thinking about something to be seen by others and be considered.
Let’s try one together to see how it works. The skills you learned yesterday will help you with the discussion that will follow.
You are going to decide, collectively, on the five most important/significant items or responses and record them in the centre of the place mat—it is important that all group members agree on the top five items.
This activity begins by having a topic to discuss. Your topic will be TIME.
We will now split into small groups and everyone will have a go at this.
We will share at the end and we will reflect on the activity
