new social pragmatic activity

I’ve posted a new social pragmatic activity.  I’ve called it Crocodile Pass.  Please look in the social pragmatic section to download the directions.  This activity encourages students to learn from mistakes and to move on.  A lot of my students are afraid of making a mistake so won’t even make a guess.   They need to learn it is ok to make guesses and mistakes can be OK.  We can learn from them.  It also  requires them to use their short-term memory and make inferences to predict a pattern. It encourages using observation as a learning method.  So have fun with it.  I’m sure you will find your own variations.  We had a group that had some low functioning and high functioning students with autism.  One guy that would stay on the side lines finally joined the group and participated for the first time.  It made my day.
