'Get Education' aims to provide teachers and students with active learning opportunities in the classroom, using 'Game', 'Exercise' and 'Test' based activities with an emphasis on learning through student collaboration. I have been working in education for fifteen years in both UK independent and international schools. Previously a teacher of physcial education and science, director of sport and housemaster I currently work as a science subject leader in a primary school.

This resource aims to help students learn the functions of the skeleton, types of bones and names of the bones in the axial and appendicular skeleton. Student learning occurs through collaboration in teams, beginning with one game and one exercise based activity. This is followed up with an opportunity to establish individual knowledge and understanding using a cloze test and exam style questions.

This resource aims to help students learn the different types of joint and inparticular, synovial joints and their possible movements. Student learning occurs through collaboration in teams and begins with a game-based joint type identification activity. This is followed by a game to help learn the possible movements at different synovial joints and where these joints can be found in the human body. Students develop their understanding of the structures and functions of a synovial knee joint via a plasticine modelling activity and develop their communciation skills with a short presentation to the class. The opportunity for some exercise through demonstration comes next, with students learning the names of body movements and showing and explaining to the class a physical movement in sports and/or exercise. The final activities include a quiz-quiz-trade, to test student’s knowledge of the previous activity, with the chance to win points via the collection of cards for correct responses. This is followed by exam style questions to help students prepare for final exams.

GET - The Muscular System 1

(0)
This resource begins with information about the different types of muscle and a game to help students understand the different characteristics of three muscle types (cardiac, smooth and skeletal). This is followed by another game to understand the names of the different muscles in the human body. Students then move onto an exercise-based activity whereby they use POST-IT notes to identify the correct names and locations of muscles in a race. Student knowledge continues to develop with another exercise-based activity in which various types of muscle contraction are identified and linked to real-life sports and physical activity movements. Competition is encouraged through the use of nomination exercise forfeits, for producing correct answers and the opportunity for bingo style scoring is available from the answer grid. Finally student knowledge and understanding is tested with several exam style questions.
