Do you mean group activities?

I assume that's what you are talking about and in that case almost any game or activity will work. You just need to hand the activity over to the group instead of keeping it teacher centered.

Take a game as teacher centered as bingo. In most classes, the teacher calls the squares and all of the students respond. However, the way I do it as a group activity is turn the calling of the squares over to the students. They are asking questions and sharing information as a group without the teacher.

In most textbooks these days they have pair and group activities with each unit. That may give you some ideas.

If that's not what you are talking about can you explain a bit more.
