Construct Knowledge and Understanding

The construct phase of the lesson is all about students engaging with new information in order to make sense of it. Active learning tasks are crucial to help students achieve deeper understanding and to allow them to develop key skills like teamwork, independent learning and problem solving.

These examples of construct activities are from the science team.
