If you've read my previous blog post on 'Comic Life' you will have seen my 1st attempt at creating a 'comic' using the app. I mentioned in that post that I intended to create some constructions resources using the app and here they are!
It took a while for me to do all the constructions, taking photos at each 'step' in the process. I then used these photos to create the 'comics'. I initially did the perpendicular/angle type constructions and then later created the triangle constructions. Here's some of the ones I've created...
Now, this is all good and well, but how do I intend to use them I hear you say? Well, here's some ideas I've had so far.
1) As they look so great I thought about printing them out and laminating them to go up on display in my room - students can then look at and read through them, be inspired by them etc.
2) Print and laminate them to be used as a group activity when the topic comes up in the SoW. Each small group could be given one of the constructions/comics and work through them to create their own version of each construction, then rotate round to the next construction/comic.
3) They could be used as extension activities for students that finish topics such as basic angle work, congruence/similarity etc.
4) They could be made into small booklets (comics) for Y11 students to use for their revision - I often find that the constructions are easily forgotten by students.
There are bound to be other ways in which I can use them. They can, of course, just be used as a series of instructions for individual students to reproduce, or to give to those students that need further support after I have taught the class how to do them as a whole group. If anyone has any other ideas let me know via Twitter @mrprcollins or by commenting below.
I plan on creating more of these so watch this space for updates...
