Crackers: Before class take a box of Grahm Crackers or any type will work. With masking tape or frosting attach a small card to the back of each cracker.
Cards: Each card will have either a good or a bad decision written on it. I.e. Lying, smoking, stealing, word of wisdom issues, clean entertainment, kindness, charity, honesty, hard work , sharing, etc.

MouseTrap and Plate
Have students each take a cracker (they will not know (at first) that there are choices on the back)
Do not have them eat them but have them read the choice written on the back of the cracker.
For each cracker ask
Does this choice represent a trap or a truth?
If it represents a trap have them place it in the trap and let it pop.
If it represents a truth have them place it on the plate for later enjoyment. Or you can let them enjoy it now.

Ask the students Why some people would make this choice when it leads them to a trap?
Why do others not make choices that will lead to their freedom and enjoyment?
