Learning Extensions: May/June Debate, "Should Students Have Assigned Seats in the Cafeteria?"

Curious to know more about bringing Mix It Up at Lunch Day to your school? This checklist breaks it down for you.

Ask your students: If you had to sit at a new table today, how could you start a conversation with the other kids? Brainstorm fun questions together, such as “What would you do if you won $100?” “If you could have any superpower, what would it be?” 

There’s a school in Michigan where students eat outside every single day “unless there is a thunderstorm, a torrential downpour, or severe sub-zero temperatures,” according to the school’s website. Would your students want to eat outside every day if they could?

Did you have trouble during lunchtime when you were a student? Did one of your own children? You might relay your experiences to the class and invite them to share their own.
