Creative Science

Filed Under (General News) by on 14-10-2012 and tagged , ,

We have been learning about ‘interdependence and adaptation’ in science.  To help remember the key vocabulary, as well learning the key points in a fun and exciting way, the children used chatterboxes during Friday’s lesson.

My class love using these in the lesson time and I loved watching them learning whilst playing. The next step will be for children to create their own chatterboxes helping to further deepen their understanding and assess their learning.

    Hello 6D,

    Sorry about the week’s delay in commenting on this post but this is a busy time of year for me as schools and community groups book me for filming and making DVDs of performances.

    The chatterboxes look brilliant. I must say I have never thought of using them this way but it’s a great way of reinforcing ideas and facts.

    When at university, one of my majors was in zoology, the study of animals. We were often looking at the interdependence and adaptations in species so your post had me thinking and that can be dangerous because it means an extended comment is on the way. Here is a link to the post on my “Extended Comments for Students” blog…
