Time for a brain break! It's the first day of class ☺ , and a chance for trust and team building.
“Find Someone Who” and “Give One, Get One” are get-to-know games with a kinematic component. Let your middle and high school students walk and talk as they review.
Give students a few minutes to brainstorm as much as they can. Students use a pencil and walk around the room to find someone to quiz with. They give one answer to get one answer from each other, with back and forth speaking in pairs, alternating generating oral responses. After a given amount of time, teacher stops and debriefs students with “Takeoff/Touchdown” formative assessment.
These partner and circulating speaking tasks will maximize the participation in your classroom. This activity is in Microsoft Word .doc form so that Ts can customize the discussion to fit the needs of Ss.
