Reach for the Moon

To reinforce the concept of phases of moon, a ‘Jigsaw’ strategy was used. Jigsaw is a collaborative learning strategy that enables each student of a ‘home’ group to specialize in one aspect of a topic. Students then meet with members from other groups who are assigned the same aspect, and after mastering the content in their ‘expert’ group, return to the ‘home’ group and teach the content to their group members.

TASK 1
Home groups where each child represents a particular phase of the moon were created.

TASK 2
Students who were assigned similar content form expert groups for further discussion.

TASK 3
The experts returned to their home group, shared and showcased their learnings by arranging the cutouts.

TASK 4
The home groups sit together to list down their learnings in the given organiser.
