Home - Actively watching? Passively listening?
Oh, that shock of getting ready for the first day back to school for the term! To kick start our solar system inquiry, we are going to be watching the movie 'Home'. I wondered if there needed to be something a little extra that we add to this activity, as it is so easy for even adults to switch off while we are watching something and forget we are meant to be 'actively' watching, rather than passively listening... Thus the crossword activity. However, again, how do you create a digital version of a crossword for a movie that you haven't even seen!! We are so lucky to live in the digital age - finding the synopsis (with spoilers!), creating a key word list, then writing clues... 4 hours later we have a crossword ready for our back to school students!
Now, just wish us luck for getting through the first week!
