Kia ora
We found a really good interactive on the Stuff website today and worked
together to put together a task for students - one in which they "become the
teachers" and design an activity for their classmates to engage in. We've
aimed it at students in yrs 9-11, with some suggestions about how to adapt
it to younger, or older students.
Please feel free to share this activity with your colleagues. We'd love to
hear how it goes - what works, what you tweaked, how the students found it

If you'd like an editable word version of the task please contact us.
