I always start of the new school year with this lesson to introduce/reinforce mapping skills at the same time as discussing with students what conditions they need to learn at their best.
This is a fun collaborative lesson that encourages discussion of your students’ ideal learning environment, while focussing on their reading and comprehension, team work, and mapping skills.
Included in this product is:
*A Lesson Plan to get students discussing their own idea of a great place to learn as well as using mapping skills (BOLTSS).
*“The Children's Manifesto” published in The Education Age, June 5th, 2001.
*My own sample ‘Ideal School’ poster including all BOLTSS mapping features.
Hope you and your students enjoy it!
