The first exercise is to underline or highlight the keywords.
Students are then able to select one of the differentiated tasks. Each task is colour coded as follows:
Green- Challenging task aimed at supporting lower ability students.
Amber- Challenging task aimed at extending middle ability students.
Pink- Challenging task aimed at extending higher ability students.
As an additional exercise you could ask students to attempt to answer the question. This could then be revisited at a later point in the lesson to see if they were correct.
This exercise is ideally carried out as individuals or in pairs.
