Critical Thinking – The 6-Hat Technique (Worksheet/Lesson Plan)

Part of the ‘Critical Thinking’ PSHCE unit.
In this activity, the teacher will take the role of someone with a “Green Hat”.
They will choose (or ask the class to vote on) one of the “Imagine a world…” discussion point which are listed overleaf (or invent one of their own).
When the discussion point has been selected, each person in the class will be given a number between 2-5 (Red, Yellow, Black, White).
You will be given the rest of the lesson to formulate your responses to the discussion point using the following information to help you (your teacher will also try to help you think the issue through).
