I did something very similar where students were given a prompt and told to act on it with no guidance at all — “Tell me everything you can about the slope of this line” (before we had talked about slope). After a few minutes, they rotated to a new line, and they could see what the pair before them had done. So if that group had talked about angles, they had to figure out something else to say. Maybe they had an idea about turning it into a triangle. And so each group would see what interesting thinking their classmates were trying and take it with them as they rotated.
