- Decide which 10 words you would like your students to revise (you may like to do this after every 2 units in your textbook).
- Dictate the words to the class, for example, you may wish to revise the words from Unit 4 and Unit 5 in Pulse 2: planet, ocean, reef, vaccine, battery, waterfalls, canyon, spacecraft, cliff, clone.
- Now ask your students to group them. You may wish to give your students topic areas (eg geography / landscape / science / health) or you may prefer for the students to decide for themselves how they wish to group them.
- Ask individual students to feedback to the class and to explain their groups.
