This resource for children in primary schools by James Nottingham's Challenging Learning Team will involve them in observing, categorising, defining, problem-solving and reflecting on themselves as part of the wider society.
Develop concepts, explore meanings, enhance thinking
Our concept activities section is full of ideas and activities submitted by our contributors to help make your p4c sessions richer in concepts and deeper in meaning.
We don’t want to repeat the same ‘directions for use’ every time we post a new activity so we have put many of the directions, together with the principles behind each kind of concept-stretching activity, in a key document called ‘Create Concept Activities‘. We hope it will also help you to create your own concept activities.
Please note: sometimes the links we create in our materials become obsolete or don’t work for a variety of reasons. If you find a link doesn’t work, please let us know, citing the name of the resource and the link if you can. Send a message to: [email protected]
