Have students interact with one another, move around the room in a structured manner, and become experts at the unit's vocabulary words all in one lesson! A fun way to introduce the unit while getting all students involved.
Students will become an expert at assigned vocabulary terms with a partner and then will speed date others in the room to teach their term and learn the others. Students will be responsible for filling out the included vocabulary chart with definitions as they "date" one another. At the end of the activity students will work with the vocabulary terms they learned to assess which relate to one another.
