Statements

Each group is provided with a set of cards with statements on them and a large piece of paper with the shape of a diamond on it. The students have to arrange the statements within the diamond so there is only one card at the top, then two cards, four cards, two cards and one at the bottom. The top of diamond denotes the most important statement and the bottom is the least important. Discussion is based around the students' choice of which statements are more or less important.
