  • Hang up 6 sentences in a place where students won’t disturb other classes, like an empty room next door or the hall.
  • Make groups of 6 or less students. Each team chooses 2 runners, 1 coach, 1 recorder and 1 or 2 reporters.
  • Draw a grid on the board and list the numbers 1-6 along the top and the names of the teams down the side.
  • The runners leave the room in search of the first sentence.
  • The sentences need not be reported in order, but they must be left where they have been put.
  • After the runners have found and memorized a sentence, they must teach it to the recorder, who writes it down and passes it to the coach who then teaches the reporters.
  • When the reporters think they have it right, they go to the ALT and recite the sentence.
  • If it is correct, check its box on the grid. If it's wrong, the team tries again.
  • When a team has completed all 6 sentences they are handed a worksheet with the information they have just gathered and try to complete it.
  • When they think they have the correct names and ages the students bring their sheet to the ALT or JTE for checking.
