Student Pursuit

Have Student Pursuit worksheets prepared before students come in to class. The worksheet should consist of a table with 25 squares that have characteristics of people. For example: a square might say "Has two TVs." Another might say "Born in another country." Students walk around the room finding classmates who fit each description, and ask them to sign their name in the corresponding square. The object is to complete the worksheet with each student signing only once.
