Jillatha's Ideas: This is something I use heavily in my lessons across all year groups.
Lesson Aim: To have learnt parts of the circle and their definitions and be able to remember a certain amount based on their ability. I use the start of a future lesson to check how much has been retained.
A student sheet that is part of a collective memory lesson. There are 5 pages that are to be turned into a card sort. Each piece is folded in half and given to a pupil. You can have multiples of the same card going around or each pupil can have multiple cards for smaller classes.
The way I use it is to let them go around the room and they are either shown a picture or read a definition they are then to name the part of the circle then swap cards and move on. Eventually they should be able to name more and more. I stop then every so often and pick pupils to tell me something they have learned.
After 20-30 minutes, depending on engagement of the pupils, I will give out the properties sheet and they are to fill in as much as they can remember individually and then as a collective they come up to the board and pick either to fill in a definition or label a part.
