A long morning spent on the laminator for today’s art history task! The iron age is not the most riveting part of the art history curriculum, so I am doing my best to keep the classes interactive and interesting. Today students were put into groups, each group was given an envelope with images of two iron age objects, the titles 'differences' and 'similarities' and then a series of words. Learners had to first name the objects and decide on the era, then they had to arrange the words under either 'differences' or 'similarities'. It worked out well as it got learners talking and discussing the objects. They realised what they had or had not learned and what they needed to work on. The competitive aspect added to the experience, as learners wanted to be the best group.
