Teaching Tips for Different Learning Environments
Whole Class In-Person Learning: Students complete Part 1 and bring in toy/game for show and tell. Cut out pictures and hand out to students. Read descriptions of toy/game and have students stand up and show the toy/game picture.
Whole Class Distance Learning: Students show picture of their toy/game on distance learning platform. Teacher projects pictures of the toys/games in Part 2, reads descriptions and has students say which toy/game is being described.
