Students ask and answer questions in an around-the-room review.
review, chance, reinforcement, skill
Select a topic for review. This activity lends itself to reviewing vocabulary, math, and just about any other area of the curriculum.
Before the Lesson
This lesson requires some preparation:
Note: No two questions can have the same answer. Each question must have a different answer.
After the cards are prepared, shuffle the cards and give one card to each student. Which student has the card with only a question on it -- and no answer on the back? That student starts the activity by reading aloud his or her question. All students must pay attention as the student reads the question because one of them has the answer to that question on his or her card. The student who has the correct answer reads it aloud. Then that student turns over his or her card and reads the question on the back. The student who has the answer to that question reads aloud the answer, then turns over his or her card and reads the next question -- and so. The game continues until the last student -- who has an answer, but no question, on his/her card -- reads the final card.
Collect the cards. If you haven't finished, the game can be completed on another day.
End the activity with a quiz that includes ten of the questions posed in the game. Each student should correctly answer at least 8 of the 10 questions.
