This is an effective revision aid for audio learners, or for pupils who use repetition to help them retain information.

Seated in a circle, the first pupil says one thing they've learnt: growth is an increase in size. The second pupil repeats that fact and adds a fact of their own: growth is an increase in size; development is an increase in skills and abilities. The third pupil repeats the two facts and adds a third fact of their own. The game continues with each pupil repeating all the facts, and then adding a fact of their own.

After everyone has had their say, pupils can repeat all the facts in unison, or write them down in their exercise books from memory.
