Orange and Blue Activity


Orange and Blue Activity


The purpose of this activity is to introduce the concept of discrimination and help make it concrete for students. The "Blues" will become frustrated quickly, so best to keep students in their roles for only a few minutes--they quickly understand the point. The debriefing period is important so that students can reflect not only on the lesson's purpose but also how they felt.
