Revising using origami fortune tellers
I tried this out today with a Year 7 group of students, I am sure you remember using one of these when you were at school to predict who would be your next girlfriend or boyfriend! Here is a giant one some students made today.
What did we do?
Instead of predicting your future love interest we replaced the names with Science revision questions then each student tested each other using the fortune tellers.
What did the students think?
“It made our revision really fun! I also learnt some things that I didn’t know already from the questions that I got wrong!”
“I learnt more science from making up my own questions and then by testing other people in a interesting way it really helped stick the information in my head!”
How to make your own?
You can see how to make one from this short video where two year 7 students have a ‘fortune teller off’ as they race head to head to see who can make one the quickest.
