“With the uncertainty of the world, let’s keep the love for learning to be the constant for our children. Keep it Simple. Keep it fun! #maslowbeforeyoubloom”
See how Shahnaaz Omarjee when she taught at Clarence taught types of triangles to her Grade 6 Mathematics learners using an amazing combination of coding and project based learning.
With this project I wanted my learners to get creative with triangles. They would explore its properties, look for it in the world around them and then recreate the different types of triangles found using the sphero ball and the clips app. Areas of development:
Reinforcing the concept of visual differences in shapes and their uses in the real world.
Provide learners with a rubric/checklist so they cover all the aspects. Allow them to explore triangles while having fun.
Give a time frame for students to compile their video using posters in clips to separate thoughts and ideas.
Give learners guidance and support when enhancing their projects.
How did this research take place, share examples
Allow for time in planning their presentations, while presenting use feedback technique “one star and a wish” where other learners can compliment their work and offer their feedback to further improve.
