We have been working on Venn Diagrams in year 7.
We started small – just post its with our names on – placing them on the board.
Then we moved onto numbers; multiples, factors and so on.
We dabbled with probabilities – a couple of us went as far as P(AuB) and P(AnB).
Today we pulled things together with a game of Guess Who
- A set of Guess Who characters can be found online
- Each student had a set and they played in pairs
- The chat about characteristics was great – thinking skills galore
- We finished by making posters in pairs – many were happy to try 3 sets – then we stuck our Guess Who characters onto the posters
A nice lesson – the students were fully engrossed – the basic concepts of sets and Venn Diagrams were certainly embedded.
