activity 5.2.1

1. Form Groups

Assign students to groups of four to six. 

2. Identify Problems

Each group should discuss among themselves and identify 2-3 problems that they feel need to be solved immediately. These problems can be related to school, their community, or any other relevant area.

Write these problems clearly on a piece of paper.


3. Submit Problems

Once written, each group should fold their paper and drop it into a designated box.


4. Draw a Problem

After all groups have submitted their problems, each group should pick one piece of paper from the box (not their own).

Ensure each group has a different problem to discuss.


5. Discuss Solutions

In groups, read the problem picked from the box.

Brainstorm and discuss possible solutions to the problem.

Write down the suggested solutions in a clear and structured manner.


6. Share with the Class

Each group should present the problem they picked and the solutions they have come up with to the entire class.

Encourage questions and additional suggestions from the class after each presentation.
