For each group of four students:
Divide the students into groups of four, have them choose a team name and a team spokesperson. Hand out the writing papers.
Students janken for order 1, 2, 3, 4. Give each student a set of cards according to their ordered number.
Explain and write up on the board the instructions for each ordered student. Explain that each card is to have a different thing written on it.
Each student then mixes up their pile (shuffle). The groups switch their pile of cards with other groups. The cards should be kept in their separated piles as written by person 1, 2, 3, 4.
One card is drawn from each pile and the students make a sentence in the passive voice using the information given on the cards.
A point is given for each correctly structured sentence. Some sentences won’t make sense. For example, "The alligator was written by George Bush." However, an extra point could be given for suggesting an alternative option.
Get the groups to read out their sentences to the class. This is helping in their reading, other groups listening and comprehension. Other groups can receive extra points if they can recall the topic of each sentence of the groups who read out their sentences.
