Looking for a new and fun way to use task cards with your students? Try the Kagan cooperative learning game, Quiz, Quiz, Trade. One reason this game is popular with both kids and teachers is that it gets your students up and moving. Not only that, you can use it to review pretty much any subject. Here is how to play:
- Give each student a task card. Task cards with multiple choice or concrete short answers will work best.
- Partner students.
- Partner 1 asks Partner 2 the question on her card. Partner 2 answers (or admits he doesn't know). Partner 1 acknowledges a correct answer or gives the answer if needed.
- The process reverses with Partner 2 asking the questions.
- After both questions have been asked, the partners switch cards, find new partners, and the process begins again.
- No running
- No refusing to partner with someone
- Treat partners with courtesy
