Again this is another awesome activity I learned first hand at graduate school. This is a great opportunity for students to feel empowered and to build community in the classroom.
- Give students the day before or give them 3 minutes to think of something they can teach a classmate in 2 minutes. Verbalize examples like learning a word in a different language, drawing a specific object, making a paper boat, or a tap dance move.
- Ask the students to move around the room and find someone they do not know very well and then start the clock. At 2 minutes ask the students to switch off the teaching role.
- Ending with a discussion rounds out the activity. Ask students what they learned and how they felt during the activity.
