The process of creating an activity for Connections is slightly different — rather than simply being a list, it is a list with a specific structure

Rows 1 to 4 should be the first category.

Rows 5 to 8 should be the second category.

Rows 9 to 12 should be the third category.

Rows 13 to 16 should be the fourth category.

Row 17 should be the explanation of the first category.

Row 18 should be the explanation of the second category.

Row 19 should be the explanation of the third category.

Row 20 should be the explanation of the fourth category.
