What Makes a Good Resource

Collective Memory

Resource description:

Collective Memory

This is an engaging activity which promotes team work and can be adapted to learning in several areas. It is accessible and my pupils found learning this way was fun.

Teacher comment:

This has worked well, engaging pupils in mainstream SEN and MLD settings.

What I did:

Pupils were placed in groups of 3 or 4 and asked to take turns to look at an 3-D object made from inter-locking coloured cubes. They would be given a limited time to view before returning to their team to describe and attempt to replicate what they saw.


This can be used for other areas of work. [multiplication tables for older pupils, shape properties, graphs, etc]

Physical movement was a positive aspect of this for some pupils. The outcome is wholly practical and this helps for those with limited written skills or poor attitude to writing.
