Leap cycle-3 time for “Deliberate Thinking….!!”

Leap cycle-3 time for “Deliberate Thinking….!!”

After exploring the makers club activity, this  was  time for Grade 5 Learners to explore and tickle the thinking process.

This cycle , the learners learnt a new thinking  tool CAF (Consider All Factors), they explored the thinking tool as to how and  when  to use the tool and also tried the same in the class on their own; the teacher followed “we do” and “you do” model where the teacher first explained the tool in detail with an example  on the board and later the learners were given a topic to  try out  in the class / hw.

A brief on CAF:

CAF = Consider All Factors

When you have to choose or make a decision or just think about something, there are always many factors that you have to consider.

If you leave out some of these factors, your choice may seem right at the time but will later turn out to be wrong.

When you are looking at other people’s thinking, you can try and see what factors they have left out.

sharing the images of  few responses from the learners.
