Activity

Frame a Special Item

If you could frame something important to you, what would it be, where would you hang it, and why would you choose this particular thing to frame? These questions launch a lesson designed to help class members get to know each other. Pupils watch a short video introducing these questions, then craft their responses to share with the class.
