With or without you – a quick starter/plenary activity

Another quick and simple starter or plenary which needs no preparation and helps students to think laterally and apply the knowledge they have learned in your lesson so you demonstrate progress.

With or without you …….

Give students a statement to complete along the lines of ….

Without ……… there would be no ……..

For example …..

Without the Treaty of Versailles there would be no …….
Without the dagger in Romeo and Juliet there would be no …..

This encourages students to explore consequences and connections as well as applying their knowledge they have gained in lessons. Once students are used to this activity, then can then set their own examples and test each other in pairs or groups.
