Always, Sometimes, Never Question Resource

A collection of challenging questions grouped by topic and ordered in levels aiming to promote discussion of topics learnt. I find that the questions are best used as starters or plenaries to get pupils discussing whether the statement is always true, sometimes true or never true. Some do not have a definite answer and should encourage some debate!

The idea is for the students to work in pairs and discuss which ones are Always True, Sometimes True or Never True. Some are likely to be placed quite easily and other I deliberately wrote to be provocative and promote discussion. For more ideas and resources, visit

6 Philosophy Sessions for years 1-4

If you have never tried philosophy before these lessons are a good starting point! The children really enjoy these discussions/debates! Based on ideas from Philosophy 4 children everything is explained in the lesson plans. PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK! The children sit in a circle and take turns to discuss what they think the answer to the question is-saying whether they agree or disagree with another child. They improve their listening, speaking and reasoning skills and learn that there is not always one right answer to a question.

Points, Lines, Planes & Angles: Always, Sometimes, or NeverQuick View

Points, Lines, Planes & Angles: Always, Sometimes, or Never

Two versions are included - Version 1 (Worksheet) - Students determine whether each statement is "always true," "sometimes true," or "never true." They color each one accordingly and end up with a design that can be checked quickly for accuracy (but cannot be easily predicted by students). Version 2 (Sorting Activity) - Students can work alone or in pairs or small groups. Students sort the statement cards into the correct category on the sorting mat ("always true," "sometimes true," or "never true"). This works great as a learning station. You can print the cards on colored card stock and laminate them to re-use each year. Get your students thinking critically about situations concerning points, lines, planes, and angles. Statements include the following terms: congruent measure intersect adjacent perpendicular, parallel acute, obtuse, right supplement, complement vertex coplanar
