What worked well in this class? What did not work?
The timing was very good and the students performed well on the tasks. In the beginning the students found it a bit boring, but throughout the lesson they had more and more fun.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
Make it more fun; Maybe make it a game or competition and one group can win.
