Guessing game (group work)
A teacher joins the class into two groups. Each team gets a hat with the strips. They took turns to get a strip out of the hat. If the team can answer the question written on the strip they get a point. If they cannot answer, the other team gets a chance to get two points for the right answer.
Let’s play a game. Take turns to take strips with tasks out of the hats. For each right answer you get a point. But if the answer is not correct the other team gets an opportunity to gain two points. So, be careful and precise!
