I have been given the opportunity to teach an enrichment class on philosophy to a class of grade 7 and 8 students. I have a graduate degree in the field and know the students well, so I'm not totally lost, but would appreciate suggestions on:
1. Topics for discussion and investigation
2. Activities (things to do) and ways to encourage engagement
3. Resources (preferably free!)
And any other suggestions you have to make this experience meaningful and interesting for a great group of 13 year-olds.
