An Experiment in Unfair Treatment/Prejudice

A rigged spelling bee gives class members a chance to experience some of the feelings associated with unfair treatment. Team one is given easy words while team two is given difficult words. As teams realize the unfairness the instructor launches a discussion of groups that were singled out for unfair treatment. Carefully consider the climate of your classroom before using this lesson plan.
