How do you introduce a new topic?
Have you ever used ‘The Mystery Box’?
I love how this exercise gets children thinking and asking questions…
Check out The Inspired Apple for more information about this idea.
I wouldn’t get too hung up on searching for this particular shape/style of box. Any box will do, provided it’s dressed up with a bit of the old WOW factor.
Check out Teaching Ideas – they have some free mystery box resources you can use.
