We know that learning a concept well involves examining it from multiple angles. Today in class, my Yr10 students examined the central concept of ‘Average Speed’ in a variety of ways. They explored this concept via stations on:
S: ‘Summary Station’
C: Create station
I: Interpret station (examining data in a table, thus numeracy skills)
E: Experiment station (hands on learning using a constant velocity car)
N: Navigate station where they matched key terms (SST) with their meaning to reveal a mystery
C: Challenge station, where they answered questions on a site called Boom Learning.
E: Extend station to take them further
(This amazing learning activity is from The Science Duo. I have modified some of the stations for my kids and the equipment available).
They also explored an amazingly visual and interactive station using Boom Cards. This is a digital way to make and use (self-marking) cards that students explore on their learning device.
Using coloured Doodle notes also gave them a visual way to summarise, revise key ideas for average speed. Here you can see a student completing their Doodle Notes in coloured pencil which aids in memory recall (compared to black dominant note taking).
The students did a great job showing focus at multi-tasking, which are key ingrediants in scientists.
Keep up the good work yr 10.
