Why not! 11 13 14 15 16 18 As you can see, certain elements have been replaced with images. This way you can get your pupils to guess just from the image, which is rather challenging whilst also a good memory test. Na Al Si Ar 19 20 31 33 34 35 36 K Са Ga As Se Br Kr If you want to give them a little clue, why not add a fact to the image to help them along the way? 37 38 49 50 51 52 53 54 Rb Sr In Sn Sb Te Xe Okay, so most of the class still won't be able to guess, but they get to learn a fun fact at the same time. 55 56 81 82 83 84 85 86 Some might say you're tricking them in to learning! Cs Ba Ti Pb Bi Po At Rn Another good way of getting them to think it using visual representations - as you can see from our example, we've used a swimming pool in place of the element, Chlorine. 87 88 Fr Ra Productive Diagrams Another way of getting pupils involved in a lesson is by creating a diagram together. condensation As an example, we've used "The Water Cycle". Each of the labels are attached by Velcro. This means that pupils can label each part on the poster as an exercise. Start with a landscape and let them attach the clouds, sun and correct labels where they see fit. precipitation They could even add rain with some thin blue velcro fasteners as decoration! evaporation Once you've done this exercise once, we're sure you'll want to use this method again. Both fun and productive. Another exercise could be "The Digestive System" - using Velcro strips for specific parts and labels to go along side them. Visually Effective If you have some visually effective resources it is a shame to have them locked away. Anything that sprouts inspiration or help during the learning process should be, well, stuck to the walls! Whether it's pieces that you've created with the class, famous quotes or giant inflatables, with the use of Velcro, you can have these subjects on show at all times. If you're able to constantly go back to these objects and use them to demonstrate something specific, then they're more than worth the investment. Plus, they make great decorations! Infographic by...
