In each of the activities below, the students are first presented with a problem that requires a solution. Together they must come up with an answer. More than likely, the teacher will provide the problem. I would suggest identifying real world issues facing the learners in that particular group.
SuggestAs a group, the students should create a list of suggestions on how to solve a particular problem. You may want to limit the number of suggestions to 3, but before you do, encourage them to come up with as many as possible and whittle the list down to the best.
Choose or DecideStudents choose from a list of suggestions. These suggestions could come from the teacher or be actual suggestions for the given problem. The suggestions may also come from another group of students. In fact, run a choose activity after a suggest activity.
This can also be done as a pyramid activity. Tell each student to work individually and come up with 3 options. Then put students into pairs and have partners consolidate the 2 lists into 1. Then put them into groups of 4, and again ask them to consolidate their lists. Eventually the whole class will have to agree on the top 3 options.
