Geography – How it works magazine

At the beginning of the term, Year 8 were taught about sustainability and the future of our energy. The objective of the lesson was to create a product that relies on renewable energy only.

To support the students, we used our collection of How IT Works magazines. The boys found these interesting and thought provoking. While they were fully engaged in their learning, I noticed that the boys couldn’t stop reading and creating. Thus, I waited till near the end of the lesson to ask the boys to hold up and display their enthusiasm for the task and the articles in the magazine.

This was shared via @verulamgeogHOD on twitter with the tweet of ‘Year 8s deep into @HowItWorksmag to find evidence of how energy is going to be used in the future and what products might be out there. Finding their first piece of #OK (OwnKnowledge) #NextStepAlevelGeography.’

I was pleased to then be contacted by the magazine, to request to use of the image and tweet in a future publication. So I am even further pleased to share the published tweet in print to you today (please see attached). Issues 124 of HowItWorks magazine have recognised our students’ passion for learning. Please do follow @verulamgeogHOD for further updates of Geography  at Verulam school.
