This activities for open evenings or tasters for A-level Psychology.
1 - SERIAL KILLER OR PSYCHOLOGIST - I glued the descriptions of the person to the back of the photo and laminated them as individual cards. I then give the set to a prospective student to sort them into two piles as to whether they think they are a serial killer or a psychologist. It leads to interesting discussions of why they have put them in those piles and can lead to Lombroso and or stereotypes.
2 - INTERESTING CONDITIONS - students match the name of the condition to its description (for example - prosopagnosia and synaesthesia.)
3 - TRUE or FALSE- cards with statements on that can be put into a jar and students pull one out and discuss with you whether they think its true or false.
Also put in a poster of topics we study for AQA psychology for the display board
