1. Choose fruits for the number of groups you would like to divide the class into (e.g 4 groups - banana, pineapple, grape, peach).

  2. Go around the class allocating a fruit to each student - banana, pineapple, grape, peach, banana, pineapple, grape, peach, etc until all of the student have a fruit.

  3. Students then find their matching fruit. 

  • Alternatively, 'fruit salad' groups can be made. Students have to form groups with one of each fruit which gives them some element of choice of group members. 

  • Fruits of different colours may be chosen to add an additional element to the grouping. This can be helpful if you would like the groups to sit at particular locations which can be colour coded with hoops, sticky notes, markers, etc.

  • Categories other than fruit can be used to fit with the theme of the lesson or to revise a previous lesson. E.g Different forms of contraception (IUD, pill, condom, rod)
