Really useful when extending students’ thoughts about a subject and equally good during observations when you need to show you’re extending students’ thinking by analysing more deeply. For the mobile: print it off in colour, cut up, attach the image of the brain at the top of the mobile, hole punch the question tags and attach them to their specific red banner. Or just use it for a display that is near your board so you can refer to it repeatedly in lessons. Suitable for all year groups and all curriculum areas.
