This fun-filled ready-to-use activity will keep your students engaged from start to finish while reviewing the key concepts for any piece of reading they have completed.
Loosely based on the adult speed dating activity, this review involves each student assuming the role of an inanimate object from the reading and participating in discussions with other students also role playing as an object from the text. Their goal is to quickly determine if they could be a match (if they have anything in common). To achieve this goal, they will review key literary concepts (characters, setting, conflict, plot, point of view, theme, etc.).
The beauty of this activity is the students will review the reading and make new connections among the pieces of literature while having so much fun it won't feel like another boring review day!
This whole-group activity can be used with any group of students whether they are a mixed ability group or all of the same ability. It includes pages with and without borders for students with visual stimulation needs.
It is easily adaptable for non-fiction passages and other content areas.
