Time needed: 5 – 10 min
Why? Association line are the best possibility to recall knowledge in the deeper thinking of the subconscious.
When? Any time when the teacher recognise that the students need to have a break time while passive thinking.
How? Let the students start the association line with one word connected to the topic and then they should repeat the first word and say one more word which is connected to the first one and so on. After one student can’t continue the correct order of the words, this student has to connect all the words under the taught topic and recall knowledge includes these words.
Any risks? The students mostly will have a lot of fun while that game, it trains the brain to remember associative content and give them possibilities to associate sub content to remember knowledge.
