Give each person a task: recorded, supply manager, time keeper, presenter. Have written and oral directions, with visual prompts. Ask students to repeat orally what they are to do BEFORE they begin, correct any misunderstandings and release them to work. The teacher should circulate and monitor the groups. Set a time limit then have team member present or summarize their findings/answers.

Thank you for sharing. It helped me.
I appreciate your response and will try it when school begins.
YOU select who will be at what table. It might take a little moving around but you want people who will work together, not just hang out and talk the whole time (very typical 7th grade) I like what Sonia said too - Good luck this year!
