In this jigsaw lesson, your students will learn about kitchen utensils and appliances. This lesson is part of a unit about cooking.
Students are put into 4 expert groups of 6/7 (with a student from each original group of 4)
Expert groups will learn the lesson’s vocabulary in 4 different ways:
Expert Group 1: Pronounciation + flashcards
Expert Group 2: Words + phonetic transcription
Expert Group 3: Words + pictures
Expert Group 4: Pictures + definitions
After practising the words, experts will return to their groups and groups will fill in the common worksheet by .adding the information they have just learnt
In this lesson, the whole group relies on each student to provide crucial information in order to be able to fill in the final common worksheet. Each student’s work and knowledge matters! It is a good way to encourage team work and it is even better if the teacher is able to form expert groups where student’s strengths are valued.
