This activity will get your students out of their seats, moving around, and discussing the material. It is fully editable and requires very little preparation. Simply print, cut out the flash cards, and pass them out to students.
Note. This resource can also be used as excellent question bank as it contains 32 high-quality questions that you can use in any way you see fit.

Here’s how you implement them:
1. Provide each student with a flash card
2. Pair up students using the stand up/hands up/pair up method
3. Partner A reads the question to Partner B, who answers. Partner A praises if correct or coaches if incorrect.
4. Partners switch roles
5. Students thank each other and switch cards
6. Partners raise their hands to find a new partner
7. Repeat for a specified amount of time
Alternate way to ensure each student gets a new partner each time:
Divide students into groups A and B.
Have every student pair up with someone from the other group (if there is an odd number of students you participate too!)
1) Do Speed Quizzing
2) Then have group A move to the right and group B stay still.
3) Do Speed Quizzing
4) Then have group B move to the left and group A stay still.
Every student in group A will meet every student in group B, but students will not meet students in their own group (a clever way to keep apart students who should not be partnered for whatever reason).
This activity can be used to:
• Prompt meaningful student conversation
• Review prior knowledge
