1. Review and Motivation


Today were about to proceed in our next
lesson but before we dig inside, we are going
have an activity, and this activity will serve as
a recap about our recent topics and a clue for
our todays lesson.

Are you in?!

When I asked you, Are you in?! you are


going to shout We are In!

Again. Are you in?!

Yes Maam!

We are in!
Alright. Listen to my instructions because I
will tell it once.
First Ill group you into four.
If you notice there is a cartolina at the centre
containing questions that are related to our
recent topics and there are four boxes too.
Actually those boxes contain the answers that
correspond to those questions in cartolina. All
you have to do is to get the answers inside the
box one by one, one question-one member. The
first member will run toward the box to get the
answer in the first question and he/she will
paste it in his/her chest and afterwards he/she
must return in the group and snap the hand of
another group mate to get the answer of the
second question and will paste it in his/her
chest too, and so on, until you complete the ten
questions. In a group there are 12 or 11
members, so one or two members will remain,
those members will be the picker/s. After
completing the ten questions the picker/s must
immediately get the bag that contains puzzle
pieces, and the group should form and arrange
the puzzle. When you are done with the tasks,
you will shout your buzzer.
And these are your buzzer for each group:
Group 1 - Uno
Group 2 - dos
Group 3 - tres
Group 4 kuwatro

The winner group will receive prize.
