Three Musketeer Groups

Found in: communication & collaboration; pairing & grouping

This tip is a variation of the 'heads together' or 'buddy buzz' concept to get students engaged.

Each person in the room finds two other people to form a group of three. When the group is formed, all join and raise arms (like the musketeers) to show they are a team. A question is then asked, and each person in the group has a chance to discuss it. With young children you may want to assign who goes first (shortest child, nearest to door, etc.).

The strategy can be used to form discussion groups for a story, to review content for a test, to work in groups on an assignment, etc. It also allows movement and thus is an energizer for the class.
