Lessons and Resources:

Roll A Question

Cost: E1.99

Audience: Years 5-8

Activity Length: 30 minutes +

Format: pdf

This is truly a fantastic and fun resource which is going to get your class talking. It is a revealing game in which players answer a range of questions designed to find out more about their home lives, screen time and what they understand of certain aspects of puberty. I have used this game multiple times and it has created in-depth discussions which gave me a real insight into the student’s home lives, parental involvement in their device use, how they feel about themselves and others and what they understand about growing up. All you need is the printout (I’d recommend printing it in A3) and a pair of dice!
