This was an introductory lesson for the topic of Concept Maps in computing. This lesson did not use any computers (unplugged activity), but got children being active. It presented to children the importance of concept maps and challenged their thinking about how and what makes an effective concept map. Children shared their ideas and passed the ball of wool on to another person in the room to share their ideas. This created something like a spiders web, and showed the children that it is greatly important to organise our ideas.
During the lesson I used good behaviour management, setting out my expectations and using positive praise and feedback to highlight good behaviour.
TARGET: Continue to explore creative teaching activities.
