This is a terrific classroom activity to help students understand classism as a system of inequality/oppression, and to help students see how their lived-experiences as well as the experiences of their peers have been impacted by their own socioeconomic status throughout their lifetime. *Note: this activity is more effective when the students have some level of trust among one another and their are clear communication guidelines set up for discussion.
