Set up a scale reaching from agreement (Übereinstimmung) to disagreement (Ablehnung). (A smiley face on one end and a frown on the other works well). Explain to villagers that they are to place themselves on the scale according to their opinions. The counselor then reads prepared statements--for example, “Ich meine, Wienerschnitzel schmeckt gut”--and the villagers place themselves on the scale accordingly. Another opinion is read (“Ich meine, eine Reise nach Grünland ist eine gute Idee.” “Ich meine, George Bush ist ein guter Präsident.”) and villagers switch around. With an advanced group, have them make the statements.
