Provide students with or allow the students to create a list of advantages and disadvantages, on a particular concept/ topic . The students then collaboratively discuss which will have the largest positive and negative impact. As a challenge students should work out that 0 means the event has no impact at all on the topic.
  12. 12. Battlewords Romania
  13. 13. Battle Words The idea is that students apply their knowledge of co-ordinates to remember and define key words. Battle Words has two levels with easy being a one quadrant grid and hard being a four quadrant grid for higher ability students.
  14. 14. Writing Weigh- In Tackles students understanding of weight as well as helping them apply VCOP to improve extended writing task. This activity also gives students a chance to practise their addition skills. The resource works on the basis the heavier the assignment the more sophisticated the answer is. Teachers should set a minimum weight for the assignment, which can easily be differentiated for groups of students. When setting the weight use kg instead of g so pupils have to remember 1000g = 1kg.

Students are required to work with time and calculate how long their individual journey has taken, how long they spent in stations and how long they spent on the train. On a student’s arrival at the final destination students should attempt to complete an arrivals challenge.
  18. 18. Thermometer of Understanding The Thermometer of Understanding allows students a chance to rate their learning more accurately than a simple Red, Amber and Green, (RAG).
