Reach for the Moon

To reinforce the concept of phases of the moon, the ‘Jigsaw’ Collaborative Learning strategy was used. This strategy enables each student of a ‘home’ group to specialize in one aspect of a topic and thereafter, meet with members from other groups who are assigned the same aspect. After mastering the content in their ‘expert’ group, the students return to the ‘home’ group and teach the content to their respective group members.

Home groups are created.

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

The experts return to their home group for a sharing of their learnings.

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