Utilize these materials as a great tool to get your students up and moving! This is an activity that is sure to get their blood flowing and their focus up! To use a “Find Someone” as an activating strategy or as a summarizing strategy:
1.Provide students with a copy of the “Find Someone” organizer.
2. Set a timer for 5-10 minutes.
3. Have students read each box placing by the statements they
know the answer to.
4-Then have them find peers in the class who know the answers to the content questions.
5. Project the organizer and have students select who will identify who is being described based on their knowledge of the content.
