P4C – For the Birds

This week, the class began a P4C lesson, which has opened up an enquiry into the idea of karma and how different actions can be justified. We began the lesson by playing a game where we had to use our best listening skills to work out who stole the keys.

After discussing our Golden Rules, we watch the Pixar short “For the Birds”. This led us to some “Big Ideas” that can see in the pictures below. Our discussions centered around the theme of exclusion and the righteousness of our actions, even if they have negative consequences.

We came up with philosophical questions and then voted on our favourite – we have chosen to discuss, “If you do something with negative consequences for the right reason, will you still get karma?” We will discuss this in our next P4C lesson!
