Interesting Facts

Age: 9,10
Project Year: 2011-12

Collaborative learning through interesting facts

The title for this year's project was Interesting Facts. The children used resources (library books/Google search/books) to find some interesting/amusing facts of their own choice. The children then designed a poster for each fact. These are now displayed on our Dissolving Boundaries noticeboard on the school corridor. Some facts were also sent to our partner school through the DB messaging forum Finally each individual piece of work was compiled into a PowerPoint presentation.

For Dissolving Boundaries Day 2014 we invited schools to send us short video recordings that show what DB means to them. We've pieced these together into a movie!
