Creating a jigsaw activity for reading comprehension

Enjoying a maternity leave for a second time I  decided to take up some courses to improve my skills and catch up with new attitudes towards teaching and EFL.  I therefore, attended a course about teaching reding comprehension from a task based approach.The course explores ways of teaching reading skills in English as Second and Foreign Language and suggests new activities  beyond skimming and scanning. I have created a lesson plan based on a jigsaw activity. This is an approach to reading that involves the students in speaking and summarising skills.You can either hand out to students  texts on the same topic or split the text in two. Students can work in groups and then relocate to report to others their answers and findings. 
Below is a lesson plan about the refugee crisis that has affected Greece as well.
