On-line communicative lesson
To have an alien as a friend or a dinosaur as a pet? To be an excellent student without having free time or to live carefree getting Cs? In Ukrainian lessons, we often turn to such seemingly absurd questions. But they help to activate the brain, choose arguments, consider every opinion after hearing each other, and make choices. For children it is a game, but such communicative lessons develop critical thinking and the ability to express arguments. Even the 5th graders already know that “because I want to” or “I just think so” are not arguments, and with such words we will not break through in life.
The rules of the game teach not only to speak in a structured way, but also to be able to listen to others. After all, the game involves everybody to make conclusions about what they hear.
