They are brilliant for challenging students and are a great way to start a lesson. There’s a vast range across all of the subjects we offer – fab!
Wondering how you can incorporate them into your lessons?
Here’s some handy tips on using ThinkIts in the classroom:
- Lesson Starter: inspire creative thinking for the rest of the lesson by popping a ThinkIt on your whiteboard at the beginning of the lesson.
- Group/Class Work: put them up on the whiteboard (or use the Print option) to encourage students to work together and build skills.
- Search for a Specific ThinkIt: simply filter your search if you know there’s a certain ThinkIt you like.
