Active learning strategy has an important role in helping students gain twenty-first-century skills such as creativity, collaboration, responsibility and effective communication. By being more active and free in classrooms, students take their own learning responsibility. In this study, we wanted to see the active learning strategy through students’ eyes. Thus, we asked for their views after the completion of the activity. Consequently, students stated they had a lot of fun, felt happy and proud. They also indicated that they developed their imagination and creativity. They also found the opportunity to practice speaking English and discovered how to reach a consensus as a group. In sum, the activity we adopted active learnin strategy provided them a better learning environment.
