You will need:

  • Not a lot really…just groups and your normal lesson

How it works

Organise students into groups, each with a task but with different information. Each group (or you) can then nominate a spy to visit another group to find additional information to help with the task. If you want to introduce an element of competition, then you could send them to negotiate with other groups for an information exchange


  • Initial information can be distributed to certain groups depending on the levels of the students in those groups.
  • More able students could be designated as the envoys/spies in order to bring additional information to the group.
