Iceberg Thinking



You will need:

Something similar to the above example or the example given out during briefing!

How it works:

We know that most of the mass of an iceberg is actually submerged beneath the water. Similar to teaching, the understanding of content comes from delving deeper! Ensuring students understand this will help them when it comes to giving more information during assessments/ exams.
So, why not try iceberg thinking! It seems like a great way to move students to deeper learning and will help get them out their comfort zones, into the struggle zone. It will also help them think outside the box and extend their learning.


Get pupils to write their own iceberg thinking cards
