Part II:

Now divide your team into two sets of partners. Each set of partners will take half of the alphabetized list - sixteen words. Then each partner will take half of that list - eight words. Each partner will look up and record the meaning of his eight words on the bottom of this paper. Then, on the back of this paper, each student will take his partner's eight words and use them in sentences that demonstrate an understanding of each word's meaning.
