You will need
- Some string, pegs, imagination!
- Maybe some pre-prepared labels to peg on
- A talking point related to your topic to stimulate discussion
- Maybe some pupils’ work
How it works
Hang a piece of string along a wall or from the ceiling in your room. Or even more than one! Great for any activity that calls for ordering of any type:
- size order
- alphabetical order
- chronological order
- order of importance
- tense order (thinking of languages)
Students can peg up their labels or ideas in the order called for. The class can discuss and adjust if agreed. Great for having a go and removing fear of mistakes. Great for kinaesthetic learners and engagement
Use to provoke comment by pegging up an item of interest: I have some mathematical garments!
Use to quickly display and celebrate students’ work
