Icebreaker Activity (10 minutes):

Conduct an icebreaker activity where students share their thoughts on a scenario related to justice and peace. 

Prepare several scenarios related to justice and peace. These scenarios can be hypothetical situations or based on real-life events, such as:

  • A disagreement between classmates over how to handle a situation of bullying.
  • A protest for a social justice cause that turns violent.
  • A conflict between two countries over border disputes.
This can be a short role-playing exercise or a discussion based on a hypothetical situation to encourage critical thinking and empathy.
