After you create the group, the word "group" appears in the title bar of the workbook. Once they are grouped you can format one worksheet and all of the worksheets will have the same formatting. You can insert a row in a worksheet and the same row will be inserted into all worksheets. This is a great tool when you need for all of your worksheets to have the same formatting. You can use the Fill command in the Editing Group on the Home ribbon bar to fill information across worksheets when they are grouped. For example, if you add a few worksheets to your workbook and you can to copy parts of one worksheet to another, you could use copy and paste, however, this could take several operations to perform. By grouping the worksheets and using the fill command, you could quickly copy parts of the original worksheet to the new worksheets inserted into the workbook.
Both lower_level_thinking worksheets and too many (even high quality) worksheets can hold students back by not providing stimulus and challenge. Studies have shown for years (just do a Google search!) that children learn best through active involvement and real_life experiences. Virtually every teacher knows that children learn to read by being exposed to books and by being read to, NOT by completing worksheets. The same applies to all areas of learning. As far as using worksheets for busy work, the verdict is in. It is destructive to classroom learning to assign worksheets to simply keep students occupied. Busy work creates monotony, causes boredom and increases the likelihood of behavior problems. Period.
