INFORM : INSTRUCT : INSPIRE : creating a world of knowledge
MaxiMaps encourage pupils to develop a bedrock of knowledge
Using the floor map, pupils interact using accessories and tasks to master information through “play”
This “play to learn” methodology is effective for all ages and abilities, and throughout the curriculum
Schools have found many applications in such subjects as:
ICT – Information Finding / Research /Presentation.
History – Traditional Attitudes & Pressures /Development
R.E. -Analysis of human Activities relating to religion and examination of world issues with evaluation of impact.
Geography – Location / Environment / Physical Factors.
MaxiMap can be usefully employed in themed studies across several subject bases such as the Olympic Games or other worldwide sporting events. This would lend itself to a whole curriculum approach and could form the basis of a whole school skills day.
MaxiMap has proved to be a useful tool in capturing the attention of, and ensuring the cooperation of learners within the classroom.
