The Think-Pair-Share (TPS) method is a great way to guide conversation between children and is often used at the beginning of a session. This method could be used for helping children remember the 100 Messages, any of our LifeSkills messages and other health messages.
This method can be used regardless of what sort of matierial is being presented; verbal from an educator, written in in books, magazines or newspapers, from a film or video clip or just as a way to brainstorm ideas together.
You can also use this activity to help with listening skills. In the Share part of the exercise, children can only share their partner’s thoughts, not their own.
There’s another optional step between 3 and 4, instead of coming straight back to the group, you can pari the pairs and create Squares.
