KS3 Cross Curricular - Space and Rocket Week

Description

Eleanor Wilkinson is a maths teacher from Sussex with a big idea for a cross-curricular space and rocket week.

Last year she spent 10 days at the Teachers' Space Camp in Alabama - and she came back inspired to enthuse the students and teachers.

So she has planned that her Year 8 pupils spend four days looking at space and rockets in subjects as diverse as maths and art, and embark on a project to manage a £1million rocket building budget.

Divided into teams by the teachers, the students are encouraged to work independently and think for themselves. But will it be an excuse to mess about - and how do the teachers keep them on task without taking over?
