A classroom/learning activity is used for imparting information to students. An activity can be passive, active, or collaborative. Reading, watching, and listening are all passive activities students engage in while learning. These activities involve students taking in information and learning new content. When students engage more with an activity it can be thought of as a more active process. Active activities are helpful for students when they are applying new learning or practicing information they already know. Some active activities include games, puzzles, simulations, research, and problem-solving. While active activities can be done independently, students may also work collaboratively on an activity, such as solving a problem together or engaging in a discussion. Other activities might be kinesthetic and support learning through physical movement.
