My friend **Matt Lowry** is a Physics teacher in Illinois and he recently gave a talk about “Skepticism in the Classroom” at The Amazing Meeting 9 with **Barbara Drescher** and JREF’s **Michael Blanford**.

Some of the resources from that workshop are now available and they’re really fantastic if you’re an educator. A few of my favorites are below:

An Astrology activity (PDF) to demonstrate the Forer effect:

Explaining common reasoning errors (PDF) for a probability/statistics class:

While we’re talking about prob/stats, might as well get into cognitive biases (PDF):

And for the elementary students out there, why not introduce them to the classic duck/rabbit illusion?

There are several more resources here. Check them out!
