Artifact Handling – What’s in our presents?

Thursday 25th May | 2 comments

This morning, the children of 6T arrived to find some presents on their table. But what was inside?


The class used their source analysis and enquiry skills to find out by feeling the objects carefully and thoughtfully. They described the size, shape, material etc and speculated about what the item was used for.


Then, they attempted to draw the object without being able to see it. Finally, the big reveal! What each item was and how to use it… some were definitely easier than others.


Photos to follow from a fun lesson.
