Back to School Class building: making a personal CLASS PUZZLE as a metaphor for the class

Back to School Class building: making a personal CLASS PUZZLE as a metaphor for the class

This is an idea for an activity to do with a class to strengthen the class spirit and unity within the class. Full instructions are included, but it comes down to this: Students each colour a piece of a class puzzle. When all the pieces are put together, the puzzle is a beautiful tool for a class discussion: By asking questions in a group discussion, lead the students to understanding the metaphor of this puzzle: Look at this beautiful colourful creation, that we made as a group effort! The puzzle symbolizes our class. Each of you is a very special piece of this puzzle. The puzzle, and thus the class, is unique, because each of you is unique. Everyone has their own way talents, their own way of adding colour to the class! We all need each other to make the class complete: with just one puzzle piece missing or not fitting in properly with the others, the whole puzzle wouldn’t be complete. We are each different - we have different colours -, but what binds us is the class itself and what we share - the black marker lines! We need to do our best to fit together, give each other space. TOGETHER we are this class!

S.T.E.A.M  - Famous Inventors Project

S.T.E.A.M - Famous Inventors Project

The Famous Inventors Project is one that aims to bring Enterprise in Education together with other curricular areas, focusing on S.T.E.A.M. The purpose of the project is for children to learn about Famous Inventors, select a famous and life changing invention to redevelop and design for use in the future then develop and run a mock business to make and market their product. The project culminates in a day of presentations and pitches, allowing the children to demonstrate their learning over the course of the project. This project not only meets many of the experiences and outcomes of the CfE/NC, but can help children develop towards the four capacities, as well as giving a real and relevant context to their learning with a perceivable goal to work towards. This fully comprehensive project pack gives an easy to use, fun and accessible project for upper stage pupils to enjoy. The document is in PDF format and contains 39 pages, including a full planner/assessment tool, teacher's notes and guidance, lesson outlines and directions as well as a set of appendices and handouts to use during the project.
