The following activity is wonderful for getting students to work together to find their own solutions to their problems – from both a subject-based or personal perspective. It can be used as a basis for a whole lesson, as a fill-in activity, a starter or a plenary. It can also be adapted for virtually any age-group and for any topic or subject area.
Activity name: First Aid
Materials required: ‘Injury’ and ‘First Aid’ cards (you can find a set in the special online resource area we’ve created HERE)
Time required: Various, depending on situation – from 15 to 55 minutes
before cards are swapped so that all students are given the opportunity to both offer solutions and find answers to their questions in the same way.
I hope you enjoy using this activity with your students. I took it directly from my new book ‘The Active Learning Tool Kit – Outrageously Engaging Activities to Increase Student Participation, Raise Achievement & Have Your Toughest Students Asking for More.’
