LessonStart is a series of short, two or three-minute activities/puzzles that will get your lesson off to a flying start.
By using an interactive whiteboard (IWB), or simply a projector and screen, students are encouraged to focus on the front of the room, be involved in the activity and get ready to engage with the lesson.
Each of the two LessonStart modules contains
over twenty different activities.
Each activity works as an introduction to a lesson, and has a follow-up question to engage the class in some discussion.
Types of activity include uncovering pictures of people at work by removing jigsaw pieces, drag and drop cloze tests, matching sounds to jobs, and odd-one-out picture puzzles.
Who will benefit from LessonStart?
The Careers Introduction module of LessonStart can be used with mixed ability classes from Y7 to Y10.
The Careers Basic module is slightly easier and has been designed with the needs of less able students in mind.
