All ages

(Works best in groups of twelve or more, in relatively small age range)

1. Tell the children you are looking for four "gurus"—kids who can teach something they know in 3 to 4 minutes. (Help them brainstorm ideas: Have you been to another country? Do you know how stars form? Can you explain how trees turn sunlight into food?)

2. Have the four gurus spread out in the room. Divide the remaining kids into groups of three.

3. One from each group goes to a guru, who then teaches what he or she knows. The learners listen, ask questions, and take notes.

4. The learners come back to their groups and teach what they learned.

5. Repeat with new gurus.
