A picture of a dress went viral online when people couldn't agree on the color of it (original dress below, what colors 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 colors when looking at the dress.
3) Create their own poll and research by seeing if they can determine any particular trends in which colors 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 colors do you see? I'm #TeamWhiteAndGold ;)
