Pokemon style bug inspectors (Alternative Education)

Pokemon style bug inspectors (Alternative Education)

This resource has been created with hard to reach young people in mind. These resources have been used at The Island Project as part of vocational learning as a way of engaging young people who struggled with ADHD, Autism, SEMH and challenging behaviour. Most learners who attend our project are also struggling academically and therefore these materials are designed to allow tutors to scale the difficultly as desired. Differentiation is essential naturally with all sessions geared towards alternative learning for this criterion of young people. This project has been particularly successful when embedded with gardening sessions, ICT sessions as well as social skills building sessions. The idea behind this session plan is to encourage young people to explore and role play (optional) in an adventure just like Ash Ketchum the main character in the popular Pokemon series. Exploring the nearby nature find bugs and catch them with the intention of observing them and making key comparisons against Pokemon. Worksheets involve making posters and creating your own Pokedex to record your findings. Additonal challenges encourage young people to go above and beyond to achieve extra rewards. The beauty is not all young people have to enjoy Pokemon to engage in this session, being interested in bugs, mini beasts and insects in general is also perfect! This session will embed being outdoors, writing opportunities, computer skills development, research skills as well as social interaction.
