This activity is designed to allow students to observe their surroundings in an interesting way. Students are tasked to find letters during a walk or around their home to see if they can make a digital collage of their name using the photo’s they’ve collected of letters.
This can be used for Remote Learning or as Homework.
This is a resource that I have used for both homework and in class - could be idea for remote learning also.
This activity is based on the amazing book - Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino. This activity uses an extract from the book and students have to draw a response based on the description. The city I chose for this activity was Zenobia (this extract is available online) but this could be adaptable if you have the book and wish to study another city.
I have also included starting points for students, which I have used.
I used this activity as part of my year 8 architectural facades project. I have had some incredible responses from this activity!
