This resource is designed to ramp up cooperative learning in your classroom. We all know that students learn best from talking to each other, yet the prospect of allowing more student talk in a constructive way can be daunting.
The printables in this resource provide a fun structure to organize student-to-student talk that moves way beyond the simple Think-Pair-Share model. Using various types of fruit as a visual representation of groupings, students will get multiple opportunities to interact with one another around learning outcomes.
Also included are recording sheets to track groupings and student participation.
The Fruit Basket UPSET strategy can be applied to any content area and works great with a wide range of grades and ages.
