Why:
This activity is one way to get students to talk to each other.

How:
1. Students are given cards which contain either a title or a definition.
2. They have to find the person with the complementary card. Include questions they can ask each other on the back of the cards.
3. The pairs can also be given an exercise/problem related to their title and definition.
4. Reporting back in plenary afterwards will add to the experience.

Tip:
This activity can also be used to arrange groups of 3 or more students, by making cards that illustrate different categories (e.g. concepts, figures etc.)
