Groups of 4 develop a process or sequence in completing a task or problem
- Break into teams of 4.
- Team determines the 4 steps in accomplishing the goal.
- Each person develops the details for one of the steps.
- Team goes through entire process with each person doing their step.
- Members then rotate the step they carry out so that by the end of the activity each person has person has performed each step.
Adult Example: What are the four cadre goals?
Goal One: Technology Integration
Goal Two: Effective Professional Development
Goal Three: Technology Standards proficiency
Goal Four: Networking and Collaboration
Elementary Math Example: solve (4+3)*2+(3*8)
Step one: (4+3)=7
Step two: (3*8)=24
Step three: 7*2=14
Step four: 14+24=38
Biology: Cell Division (modify the exercise to be a 6 step solution and thus teams of 6):
Question: What are the 6 stages of Mitosis?
Stage one: interphase
Stage two: prophase
Stage three: prometaphase
Stage four: metaphase
Stage five: anaphase
Stage six: telophase
This is a great activity because each student gets to describe the different phases as they alternate which part they talk about.
