What would you rather have
Aim of this project:
When making a decision you have to give your reason for your choice by weighing up the options.
Example:
What would you rather have, an apple or a pear? Can't say "an apple." You need to say "A pear is nice, it is juicy, but I rather have an apple because it is crisp."
How would you rather get to the top of this mountain, by climbing or by helicopter?
If I were to choose climbing up, it would be cheaper, challenging and I would have a great experience.
On the other hand, if I were to fly up on a helicopter it would save me time, but it would be far more expensive.
So, I would have to say that I prefer to choose climbing as this would be cheaper and challenging than just flying to the top of the mountain.
Why is this important?
One day when working, your boss will want you to make suggestions and make a decision. He or she needs to know the reason for that decision.
You will be given different questions, but you need to give reasons for your choice by weighing up the options.
Cut out these question cards.
