Materials: Vocabulary Cards (one card per student) – cut a part before class
Procedure: Hand out one card to each student. Students must find their “family” by showing each other their cards. There should be 4 students in each family. Once students have found their “family”, they work together to justify why all of the cards belong together. I like to have my students write this part out.
*If you don’t have enough students for the cards, take a set of four out. Another option would be give a student two cards that are related. Then, the student would have a family of 3 instead of 4.
