How It Works:
I saw this originally on the twitter page of https://twitter.com/CaldiesEnglish (Definitely worth following!)
So I thought, tin foil is a really cheap and effective resource to use in lessons in a variety of ways;
You get students to...
- Model characters for Drama?
- Model out key scenes/quotes/characters from a book in English?
- Create landmarks for Geography?
- Simply be creative for Technology?
- Enlargement for Maths?
- Create the scene from a case in Law?
- Display a historical event in History?
- Demonstrate the set up of a Science experiment?
- Design equipment needed for a sport in PE?
- Create a food associated with a country for Food Tech/MFL?
- Create a piece of famous Art work?
- And so on....
I will however use it for my Citizenship lesson- on the economy and taxes.
I will get students to divide the foil out and make a Pie Chart for England's budget.
I will then get them to create/make/model the area they would like the majority of their budget to be spent on- i.e Education, Defence, Health etc.
The other students/groups can then guess what areas are preferred?
As you can see Foil is cheap and very effective!
