DT & Engineering Blog: Plenary Thought Triangle


Template for a quick plenary which asks pupils to draw the thought triangle and populate it with certain categorised information based on what they have seen, done, heard and what they would like to know now. Great for assessing pupil progress and to show independent learning and introspection. Files include original PowerPoint file, PDF file and a JPEG file excellent for posters and inserting into your own PowerPoint presentations.
