This is my second set of the questions. I have a picture that shows the easy setup to do this activity.
Check out my other set!
Here are the general directions:
1. practice the Q/A so students know the answers, and to help students who may stumble or struggle
2. Arrange chairs as in the picture, with an even number (an extra student can be the time- keeper)
3. Place question sets on one side (this worked better than all students having the cards)
4. Have students practice getting up, moving in a clock-wise direction, then sitting on my
command - this is really helpful for my classes
5. Start the 30 second timer (I have changed it to 45 seconds, depending on the group) 6. people on the right ask, people on the left answer
7. At the 30 second mark, say “stop” then count down “5-4-3-2-1 START!”
8. The process repeats
9. When the student is across from the original partner, the “game” is over!
1. Students can make their own questions, depending on the class, using the same formula, (easy, not so easy, hard, really hard)
2. Iincludedatemplateforstudentstomakequestions(easy,medium,hard) 3. Students can work in pairs at their seats, or practice these for quizzes
1. I use this in my classes and it works, and is really fun!
2. Students get to work with virtually all students
3. Students practice asking/answering
4. game is fast-paced
5. Timid, shy, or students who struggle also benefit from the repetition and from working with all students
