Grouping students for lessons can sometimes border on the mundane. It can be very easy to fall into a predictable manor by which we place students into groups for activities in class. Part of what keeps a class interesting is unpredictability…the good kind!
To that end, we have compiled twelve different ideas, four for each size of group (pairs, triads, and quads) to use in your class. All of these are very adaptable to content and age appropriateness. I’d even venture a good guess that some of you out there have your very own creative ways of grouping students. Check these out and add your own via comment!
