Evidence Hunter - Free KS3 Critical Thinking Resources

Postby AskForEvidence on Wed Sep 11, 2019 10:28 am

The Evidence Hunter activity pack is a free resource that empowers young people by equipping them to ask, ‘What is the evidence behind this claim?’ It aims to develop the skills and confidence needed to critically assess claims online and reduce the spread of false information.

By following the activities in the pack, participants will assess real claims that have been made online, in the media or in advertising, and look at what evidence exists to support them.

Examples range from claims about the benefits of products such as charcoal toothpaste and caffeine shampoo, to the impact of lifestyle choices such as the effect of social media use on sleep or whether helping others really does make you happier.

You can download the Evidence Hunter activity pack here: https://askforevidence.org/articles/evidence-hunter-activity-pack

If you are a group leader, all you will need to run through the activities is a print-out of the attached material and a set of counters or tokens, such as Post-It notes. The pack includes guidance on the different types of evidence and how you can help your group think critically about the claims they might encounter in day-to-day life.

The pack was developed in collaboration with young people and educators, has been featured in Scouting Magazine and was recently presented at the ResearchEd 2019 National Conference.
