This activity includes using a Twister mat to gauge views using the colours to answer.
You Will Require
- A Twister mat
- Prepared statements
What To Do
Invite the children / young people to stand around the Twister mat in the middle of the room with their shoes off. Explain that you are going to make a variety of statements on a particular subject and that you want to gauge their views. Say to them that if they:
- Strongly agree: stand on a GREEN spot
- Agree: stand on a YELLOW spot
- Disagree: stand on a BLUE spot
- Strongly disagree: stand on a RED spot
After each statement and move you could ask them why they chose to stand where they did. Where possible record their statements and ideas as it is important to follow up on what it said. They can then be fed back to the PCC and other stakeholders.
Adapt It For Younger Children
For younger children use words such as like, like a lot, don’t like. Three are normally enough.
