- Make enough copies of a worksheet (or Activity Book page) so each group of 3-4 Ss can have one.
- Cut the worksheets up so that each question or answer is on a single slip of paper.
- Divide students into groups of 3-4.
- Show/Write a sentence card on the board. E.g. “I am a triangle.” Ask students to read it.
- Show a picture of a circle and place it next to the sentence. “Is this correct?” (No)
- Repeat with other shapes. Show a picture of a triangle. “Is this correct?” (Yes)
- Distribute question sets to each group and ask them to match.
- Circulate and assist, asking Ss to read the sentences aloud or pointing to various shapes for spoken practice.
- Check answers verbally within groups or as a class.
This is a fun and interactive way of completing a worksheet. It encourages students to work together and makes worksheets more physical.
It is a good idea to mix the groups up to include strong and weak students in the same group. This way, the stronger students can help peer-teach their classmates. It also evens out the competition between groups.
