Have your students engage with the content and with one another in this authentic cooperative group activity!
This activity is structured to have your students be truly interdependent as they work together in their groups. Included is a thirty question STUDY GUIDE that they will go over together for about ten minutes prior to starting the lesson. Each group will then get five SHARE-SHEETS. No two SHARE-SHEETS are exactly alike. Each SHARE-SHEET has six of the thirty STUDY GUIDE answers at the top of it. None of the STUDY GUIDE answers are repeated. Each sheet has six different answers.
At the bottom of the SHARE-SHEET are twelve of the thirty study guide questions. Each question appears on two of the five SHARE-SHEETS in the group. You will have your students answer the questions in the space provided on the SHARE-SHEET. In addition to writing the answer, the students will also have to write the number of that answer as it appears on one of the SHARE-SHEETS. This means that they will have to ask the other members of the group for the numbers to those answers. Every student in the group will have answers and numbers needed by every other group member to complete their sheets. The students will have to talk to one another to be successful! Every student will have to participate to achieve group success.
Both the STUDY GUIDE and the SHARE-SHEETS activity are part of a ten activity packet which includes five cooperative group activities and five engaging games covering Minerals.
