AtL: The Internet and Dance
I put together a short homeroom activity which has students think about how the internet has influenced dance. For example, you can now learn for free online. You can be inspired by dancers all over the world. The session obviously also talked about Fortnite and TicToc!
In part of the session students watched the video "In the Internet age, dance evolves ..."
On the last page it encouraged the students to teach their homeroom teacher a dance from TikTok or Fortnite... Here is the presentation. Feel free to use with your students.
AtL: Getting to Know Each Other
I made an activity for Grade 7 homeroom students. This will take place over multiple classes, with students coming up with a mini project to help us get to know members of our community better.
The video was inspired by this video, where strangers are invited to sit in a ball pit - the larger balls have various prompts, including "Share three things on your bucket list" and "Talk about an experience that changed your life".
Students should come up with their own ideas in groups. It could be anything from prompts for students to discuss in our five minute morning advisory session, through to post-it notes on lockers. Here is the presentation. Feel free to use with your kiddos.
AtL Skills: Move to Mars
I created an activity for my Grade 7s last week. This was done in homeroom, and replaced a digital citizenship lesson I had previously planned (I think they had a few too many and they were losing impact/relevance).
This session was focussing on the question "Would you move to Mars". The activities had a focus on social and critical thinking skills. They were also able to nominate one student at the end who they thought would make the best astronaut/Martian! Here a link.
ALSO a bonus music video, recommended by one of my excellent grade 6 Design students, who is also one of robotics club members and regularly in charge of robotics club playlist! Always recommending the best Hindi songs!
