1. Divide students into teams.
The smaller the teams’ size the better because more students are doing the work.
2. Give each team different color sticky notes.
3. Generate approximately 10 questions/categories.
I like to use a combination of "fun" questions and our vocabulary words. If this is the first time you are
doing this, I recommend starting with the “fun” categories so students can get the hang of it like I did
below. Here are some of my questions. Our vocabulary words are underlined:
- Scariest movie ever.
- Ways to ask someone to prom.
- Things teens consume.
- Someone who is a bad influence on teens.
- Celebrities who have the most confidence.
- A prediction that a fortuneteller might make.
- Someone who is a good influence on teens.
- A conflict that you might have with your parents.
- The worst punishment your parents could give you.
- A time when you might be secretive.
