Skill 4.1 Categorising Visual Representations
These activities, produced by Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme, help students to categorise different types of visual representations.
Students are given a large number of different visual representations dealing with a range of scientific subjects. Through a 'happy families-style' card-game, students recognise and collect different types or themes which have features in common. In doing so, students take time to consider the range of visual representations, and their properties, that are used in science. The images for use in this activity can be found in the supporting images zip file and images PowerPoint presentation.
Alternatively, students can work in groups to order the representations into different categories.
