Tip: Find Someone Who...
How do I do it?
On a blank sheet, make a grid with tasks in each space related to the content you are studying. Copy and give a grid to each student who then must find someone who can demonstrate the task and record the answer or their name in the space. Examples: "Find someone who can define and give 2 examples of the words below: law, democracy, bill, Senate, House, committee etc." or "Find someone who can draw an example of each term below: amphibian, omnivore, reptile etc." or "Find someone who can solve the problems below: 2+1=, 1-2= etc." or "Find someone who likes the same as you: color, number, food, music, movie, book etc."
