Big Question: How can you use your intelligence to outwit others? 

Your intelligence, wits, and ability to think creatively can be your greatest weapons. They can also help keep you safe! Learning to use your wits can help you solve problems maturely and creatively.


WITS (to the tune of Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer”


Arden WITS Song
(Sung to Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer)

Working out our problems each day
We’re using our WITS, and it’s starting to pay for us…..for us
W’s for walking away,
I is for ignore it ,
You don’t have to engage, walk away……walk away
We’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
We’re gonna make a difference if we work it all out
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot for us
Let’s give it a shot
Woahhhhhh, we’re almost there,
Woahhhhhh, showing that we care
Use your WITS and you’ll make it I swear
Woahhhhhh, showing that we care
T reminds us to talk it out
We listen to each other and share all our thoughts, talk it out….talk it out
Sometimes we’ve got to seek out some help
A teacher or parent can help to work it out
Seek some help, Seek some help
With an extra showing that we care
guitar solo
We’ve got to hold on, ready or not.
If we use our WITS we can rise to the top.
Chorus x 2 with an extra “showing that we care” on the end
