Within the groups, Ss are put in pairs. T gives group A worksheet A, & group B worksheet B. Ss work in pairs to put the names onto the tree. Then, T gets the pairs to check with other pairs from the same groups. T monitors carefully to ensure both groups have got their ans correct. Later on, T gets the Ss to notice that they only have half the tree complete. T elicits a few useful questions - e.g. Who's Molly's father?- T takes back worksheets A & B.
