Product Description
The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students aged 8-18: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind.

The topic of this Philosophy Boxes download is 'The Philosophy of Math & Numeracy', the lessons deals with philosophical issues relating to mathematics and the nature of numbers.

You can browse other 'Philosophy Boxes' sessions here, or download all 20 lessons (saving 50%) here.

The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats].

The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL tasks to choose from.

The design is colorful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes.

The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity.

I hope you have some great discussions with your students and, if you like the download, you will leave a positive review and spread the word!
