A picture of a dress went viral online when people couldn't agree on the colour of it (original dress below, what colours do you see?)
Here are a few ideas of how to incorporate this crazy phenomenon into your lessons/homework activities and keep your students engaged!
2) Ask students to do a research assignment on why people see different colours when looking at the dress.
3) Create their own poll and research by seeing if they can determine any particular trends in which colours people see, such as gender or age etc.
4) Write an article/essay on what they think makes a picture go viral online.
5) Design a funny meme based on the blue/black v white/gold debate! (See examples below):
P.S. What colours do you see? I'm #TeamWhiteAndGold ;)
