Is this you?

Categories: s1 and s2
Tomorrow I'll ask s2 to imagine that it is. I want to introduce a sensory aspect to our work-By that I mean thinking about sounds, smells, touch etc that we would find in the rainforest. How would it feel? I'll probably ask for you to close your eyes and imagine. Is this a good idea after lunch, I wonder ;-) Second part of the period will be in groups. I have never tried this before but some colleagues have used a 'making animals' type activity for this topic. Design an animal best suited to cope with the rainforest-we will have already considered the conditions, so this should prepare us relatively well for this activity.I'm looking forward to trying this out, as I can see a number of uses for this type of actvity.
With s3, I actually forgot to do the 'Improving a Shanty Town' exercise( you spend shanty town points as a group),so I'm going to double back and do this after we have finished the mapping. I am struggling a wee bit with s1, as some are away to Paris, some are playing a game and others are just about finished posters, presentations etc. I might use Tony Cassidy's Eurovision exercise as a bridge to some map skills work which I want to do before the end of rotation (two weeks to go and you ar officially s2!).

Let me know if you do, I have a couple of additional resources I can send you. I used it for revision when illustrating the key term distribution...
