Quiz Quiz Trade is an active engagement structure designed by Dr. Spencer Kagan. His structures allow all students to have access to the learning target and allows students to review information by asking and answering questions from peers.
In this activity, students will be telling time to the nearest minute with partners.
For the teacher:
Print the following pages back to back so the question is on one side and the answer is on the other. My suggestion is to print these cards on cardstock and laminate them for use throughout the year!
How to begin:
After you have printed the cards double sided, pass one card out to each student. Once the student has a card, allow students to “mingle” around the classroom, listening to music. When the music stops, have them find the student closest to them to become their first partner. In my classroom, students know that when the music stops, they must find the person closest to them. Students are not allowed to pass up a classmate just to be with their best friend.
Partner A holds up the flashcard with the question side facing Partner B. Parner B answers the questions and Partner A will praise their partner if they are correct or coach Partner B if they are unsure of the answer. As a class, we always review what coaching should look like, we never tell the answer, we are there to guide our friends! Once Partner B answers, they switch roles. Now Partner A must answer the question from Partner B.
After each partner has correctly answered the question, they thank one another for being a great partner and SWITCH cards. Once they have switched cards, they raise their hand and look for another partner. The raised hand signals to other students they are ready to be their new partner.
*Repeat this process for the time you have allotted for the activity.
