Blooms questioning dartboard

Blooms questioning dartboard

A great resource to utilise questioning in class. Add your own questions to the PowerPoint which has been linked to the colour coded slides. The learners should throw an object of your choosing (I use a suction ball or a paper ball) at one of the six colours. This will move the PowerPoint onto a question at varying levels of difficultly depending on which part of the target they hit.. A simple but effective starter or plenary. Note: Two versions have been included. One where challenging questions appear more frequently and one where lower order questions appear more frequently.
