Giant post its

Posted on April 5, 2013



A really simple activity but one that is big enough for everyone to be involved in group work. I make the post it’s out of backing paper, the only thing big enough.

One of my favourite topics is Henry VIII and there are so many aspects to studying him. We do a back to back drawing activity, do a jigsaw activity about his wives and have various sources around the room like his medical record.

Over 2 lessons the students work in teams to fill their post its with information they consider interesting and important. They set each other homework after lesson 1 to bring in resources for lesson 2.

The finished products always look good and make a great instant display with plenty of room for peer assessment on little post its… I think I am slightly obsessed with post its!
