Today, J.Locke, our Science & Technology lecturer, made us do an activity where he gave us laminated photos of different parts of the university grounds. In our groups, we had to discuss and figure out where these "snippets" of the uni grounds it was.
Verdict: We get a FAIL grade if we we were ever called to the court as a crime scene witness.
The objective of the exercise was to test our own observation skills of the uni that we went to for the past
(fill in the blanks) weeks we had been there for.
He noted , "do you guys go around the uni with your head facing the ground, or you do you students not even notice anything at all???". Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.
It is a good activity that I would recommend to teachers to ive their children to develop their observation skills.
Another hands-on activity that he asked us to do was to take this plastic tray which contained 2 batteries strewn all over the box, an empty torch light, a paper umbrella (like those that decorate your cocktails and pina colada drinks), transparent opaque sheets, coloured picks.
What do you think he wanted us to do with it? The topic he had in mind was "light & shadow".
I'll let you figure out that yourself.
