The Iron Man Hook introduction Lesson 1

The Iron Man Hook introduction Lesson 1

An ideal Powerpoint and stand alone lesson to introduce the story The Iron Man by Ted Hughes - A fantastic activity to get the children ( Y3,4,5) to ask questions about the text working in pairs or bigger groups. It worked really well if the question sheet was printed off in A3 - discuss with them the type of question they could ask and which one they would get more information on e.g open rather than closed type of question. Although not the start of book it proved successful to get the class thinking about the new text - enjoy !!
