If you buy into VAK Learning Styles (I don’t…) then this is one for your “Kinaesthetic” students. Get a load of materials (paper, cardboard, pipe cleaners, art straws, sellotape, etc), and get students to make a 3D model of whatever it is they’re learning about. Examples in science include:
- specialised cells (like nerve cells, red blood cells, etc)
- power stations and their key components
- atoms & molecules
The models can be stuck onto A3 paper so their components can be labelled, or they can use their imagination and find a way to attach labels to different parts. You could then do some sort of peer assessment – maybe leave blank comment sheets in front of each model and get students to walk around, look at other people’s models and write feedback for them.
