Pupils work in pairs and are given a ‘What if?…’ card. Each card has a different scenario for something they may encounter on train journeys e.g. What if… you fall asleep on the train and wake up at the wrong station? Pupils decide how they would handle each scenario and feedback back to the class. Please note that one of these scenarios is about suicide on the railways. Please remove this card (last one in the pack) from this activity if you do not think it is appropriate for your class.
There are 17 different cards. We recommend printing 1 set of cards to enable 30 pupils to work in pairs. Once printed each page will need to be cut up into cards. If you will use these resources again, please consider laminating these cards to preserve their life. If you will not be using them again, please remember to recycle them!
