Navigating the first day with paradoxical play (164 out of 365) #blogaday

I was reminiscing on the post I wrote about not knowing what to write, and it made me think about how it was somewhat of paradox. The fact I am writing something meant that I knew what to write. My boyfriend told me of his favorite paradox and I think it would be a great way to start off the first day of school.

Written on one side of notecard is “The statement on the other side is true” and written on the other side is “the statement on the other side is false.”

It would be really cool to get the students’ minds turning, and trying to understand if this was possible. Just simply having a monitored group discussion about it and letting them figure out that it is a paradox allows the engagement right away.
