The idea here is that students are given different information in order to create something such as a newspaper, a design for a product or a new building. Let’s take these ideas in turn.
For a newspaper, each student could be given a news item in note form, where the target structure appears in high frequency. Each student memorises their information and then the students mingle to collect the information on all the other stories. They then write out the news item, using Google images to find and print out an appropriate image for the paper.

Designing a product would need each student to be given the salient information about what the products characteristics are, and after mingling to collect all the product information, students can be paired up to draw a picture of the product.

A new building could be designed based on the requirements of its purpose. E.g. for a new school, the information given out to the students could contain details on student numbers, types of installations (laboratories, sports centre etc.) and considerations such as parking and transport.

Any of these tasks will be adapted to serve as scaffolding for the target structures.

TEFL classroom training note: the activity books of many course books will often give the creative context, and the activity books often have exercises that can serve as a source of materials for creating the information needed which is to be distributed (with the target language already in place).
