This free teaching activity for primary school children will encourage their thinking skills, specifically encouraging active thinking and imagination

The activity provides a teacher with two lists of words which, when they have chosen from them randomly, will describe a weird and wonderful machine (in this case a ‘Teenager Waker’), which pupils are then asked to imagine and design.

This activity is taken from The Thoughtful Learner; a course for pupils in Key Stage 2 that helps learners begin to understand how they learn and how to improve their skills as learners, taking an original, vibrant and colourful approach.
