Register Recaps - Lesson Starter Activities

Register Recaps - Lesson Starter Activities

5 Great lesson starter activities that can be adapted for ANY subject or curriculum. Activities are fun and focus on pupil choice for theory and literacy recap! Download the PowerPoint to use or adapt to suit your subject area. Brightly coloured with a simple layout: Knowledge Wheel: Students have to get from A-B by answering the questions correctly. However, if they want to get the most points, the must take the long route around, answering the more difficult coloured questions. This method gives students a choice and is differentiated for different levels of ability. Target Practice: Using 3 darts, students must select 3 questions to answer to try to get the most points. Question difficulty varies based on the number of points each colour is worth. Again, this method gives students a choice and is differentiated for different levels of ability. Keyword Scrabble: Students must figure out each of the keywords by answering the clues and matching the letters to the total number of points. This activity is a great way to check student understanding and correct spellings. Connect 4 Analysis: Students must connect 4 in a row, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. At the top of each column there is a product analysis heading. Student can only connect 4 if they correctly analyse the product based on the heading. For example: Analysis the function of the torch, iPhone, fidget spinner and washing machine. Analysing the aesthetics of the watch, consumer of the baby toy, function of the fidget spinner and material of the Xbox pad. The gives students a choice from a range of analysis categories. Vocab Snap: Students have 2 minutes to match the vocabulary word to its definition. Using a mini whiteboard they can write, 5E…1C etc. This is a great way of embedding keywords and literacy easily.

Food Lesson Responsibility Badges

Food Lesson Responsibility Badges

I had a class who found it difficult to organise themselves when it came to tidying up at the end of a practical lesson. I produced these tags which are laminated and then attached to students’ aprons with safety pins. They are arranged into teams with a choice of six responsibilities for each member.

Transistor astable construction project (presentation and PCB design)

Transistor astable construction project (presentation and PCB design)

A mini project involving the soldering together of a simple transistor based astable multivibrator causing two LEDs to flash alternatively. Students can investigate the effects of changing capacitance values. The circuit is designed for BC548 and BC108 transistors. I have used the circuit to allow students to develop their soldering skills and then to investigate the operation of the circuit. It can could also be used as the basis of other projects which require flashing LEDs. A PCB design is provided in the powerpoint. A Circuit Wizard file can be also be forwarded by emailing ed@clarvis.co.uk)

Design and build a wind powered garden decoration/whirligig

Design and build a wind powered garden decoration/whirligig

A resource I designed and made for year nine or ten product design. Students study the basics of motion, mechanisms and force to produce a crank driven garden decoration. It isn’t a heavily prescriptive resource but offers opportunity for interpretation, differentiation and varying degrees of sophistication in terms of outcome. It contains lots of mini focused practical tasks to produce the key components for a complete, functioning garden whirligig. It contains a wealth of information to help analyze existing products, conceptualize and develop a working solution.
