Creating a ‘Connections’ Activity

An example of a ‘Connections’ activity.

The process of creating an activity for Connections is slightly different — the cards need to be created in a specific order

Cards 1 to 4 should be the first category.

Cards 5 to 8 should be the second category.

Cards 9 to 12 should be the third category.

Cards 13 to 16 should be the fourth category.

Card 17 should be the explanation of the first category.

Card 18 should be the explanation of the second category.

Card 19 should be the explanation of the third category.

Card 20 should be the explanation of the fourth category.

Thats’ it!

Here’s a very simple example:

  1. France
  2. Italy
  3. Germany
  4. Spain
  5. Trumpet
  6. Drum
  7. Guitar
  8. Violin
  9. Mars
  10. Jupiter
  11. Saturn
  12. Mercury
  13. Blue
  14. Red
  15. Yellow
  16. Green
  17. Countries in Europe
  18. Musical Instruments
  19. Planets
  20. Colours
Cards 1 to 4 are the first category, cards 5 to 8 the second category and so on…
