Liked Pyramid activity to use with any specification

A work sheet based on an  idea shamefully poached from the Paul Ginnis book on teaching activities.  It encourages students to use active learning by getting them processing information into hierarchies, either from books, articles or a video.  It may help their notetaking skills!
