Teacher’s Activity 1. Review and Motivation“Today we’re about to proceed in our next lesson but before we dig inside, we are going have an activity, and this activity will serve as a recap about our recent topics and a clue for our today’s lesson.” “Are you in?!” When I asked you, “Are you in?!” you are going to shout “We are In!”Again. Are you in?!“Alright. Listen to my instructions because I will tell it once.”“First I’ll group you into four.” “If you notice there is a cartolina at the centre containing questions that are related to our recent topics and there are four boxes too. Actually those boxes contain the answers that correspond to those questions in cartolina. All you have to do is to get the answers inside the box one by one, one question-one member. The first member will run toward the box to get the answer in the first question and he/she will paste it in his/her chest and afterwards he/she must return in the group and snap the hand of another group mate to get the answer of the second question and will paste it in his/her chest too, and so on, until you complete the ten questions. In a group there are 12 or 11 members, so one or two members will remain, those members will be the picker/s. After completing the ten questions the picker/s must immediately get the bag that contains puzzle pieces, and the group should form and arrange the puzzle. When you are done with the tasks, you will shout your buzzer.”And these are your buzzer for each group:Group 1 - UnoGroup 2 - dosGroup 3 - tresGroup 4 – kuwatro “The winner group will receive prize.”“Did I make myself clear?”“Are you in?!”“Okay, get ready.
