TOOL OR TOY
ULEAD JR/CLASSIC ACTIVITY
Tool or Toy?
Engagement, Problem Solving
Everyone has a card. People mill around the room and find a partner. Holding the card out so their partner can see the icon on the word side of the card, each person share’s whether the icon is a tool or a toy, and the reason why. Trade cards and find a new partner. This time each person must say the opposite of what their last partner said about the icon. Example: If they said a hammer was a tool, now you have to share that a hammer is a toy and the reason why.
