Four corners: Make four signs containing 1. eat junk food all day, 2. eat normal amount, 3. eat less than normal, 4. stop that day. Give the students a scenario. Ask them what they would do if I told them, starting tomorrow for a month they can not eat any candy or junk food. Since it starts tomorrow today is free to do as you please, what would you do? Tell them to look at the signs, and stand next to the one that supports their opinion. Have the students in each group talk about why they chose that category. Then have the groups share with the class why they chose the specific category.

Mini-Lecture. Tell students this concept of giving something up on a certain day, and living it up before is the basic concept of carnivals. ("Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die") Explain some of the basic ideas of Mardi Gras and how it got started at this time. Do not tell them too much, leave some wonder so you can lead into the jig saw activity.
