Teacher Notes
Preparing the dominoes cards
1. Print the template onto coloured paper.
2. Laminate and then cut up into individual cards.
3. A class of 30, working in groups of 3, will need 10 sets of cards.
Using the dominoes cards
1. Shuffle the cards.
2. Spread out all 30 cards on the table.
3. Each card is NOT a matching pair in itself. Two other cards can be
placed on either side of it so that the two neighbouring cards make up a
correct statement.
4. Each card fits only in one place and when the group has placed all
cards correctly they will form ONE closed loop.
