This booklet is designed to help students distinguish fact and opinion and offer both positive and negative arguments to real and artificial Christmas trees. They discover the history behind the origins of the Christmas tree and discuss why they think it’s so popular. The social, economic, and environmental implications of each type of tree are discussed and analysed to aid the students in deciding which they think is more appropriate. Their task is to use what they have learnt to design a leaflet highlighting their opinion to help the public decide; this is then peer assessed. The lesson concludes with the students designing their own alternative Christmas tree using their hobbies as inspiration.
