Australia - Interesting Facts

You can divide students into groups. Each student from the same group shall be given one card and read the information on the card. They can help each other within the group. Then the students are given sheets with questions. Get the students from different groups together (there should be 6 students with different texts in one group). They have to retell the information that is in their card to the rest of group so that the rest can answer the questions they were given.  I think it is a good reading as well as speaking practice. Then check the questions with the whole class.
