6 NGfL CYMRU GCaD Developing Skills in ESDGC – Globingo What is Globingo? Globingo is particularly useful as it can be adapted for use with any age group or topic. Pupils have a sheet with a set of questions. They go around the class finding people who can give them an answer. They can only ask each person once and cannot answer themselves. For younger pupils pictures can be used and they can go round in pairs. It could be used to assess pupil knowledge at the start of a topic, leading on to a mind map, or pupils could draw up their own set of questions when they know more about an issue. On the right is a completed example for Key Stage 2. What skills will be covered? Thinking: Asking questions; gathering information, linking and lateral thinking. Communication: Oracy - developing information and ideas; presenting information and ideas.

The bag could be themed, for example, toys with very young pupils, fair trade, electrical or recycled items, clothing or food. Pupils could go on to investigate working conditions, food miles or child labour. What skills will be covered?

8 NGfL CYMRU GCaD Developing Skills in ESDGC – Questioning an object Questioning an object? Questioning an object or a photograph can be an excellent way of encouraging young people of all ages to think critically. They can be encouraged to ask a range of questions which help to draw out social, cultural and environmental dimensions. The object chosen can be an everyday object or something about which nothing is known. Pupils can be asked to think of their own questions or given prompts. With older pupils the questions, backed up with research, can help lead to an understanding of the lifecycle of an object. What skills will be covered? Thinking: Asking questions; activating prior skills, knowledge and understanding; thinking about cause and effect and making inferences; generating and developing ideas; evaluating own learning and thinking. Communication: Developing information and ideas; presenting information and ideas; organising ideas and information; communicating information.

9 NGfL CYMRU GCaD Developing Skills in ESDGC – Using Photographs Using Photographs? Photographs can be used in a number of ways. They are useful in establishing a baseline of knowledge and understanding, and as such are a good way to introduce a new topic. They can be used to highlight stereotypes and misunderstandings. They can help to develop empathy and pupils’ questioning skills and encourage pupils to imagine beyond the boundaries of what they see. Case Study Pupils were asked: ‘What can you tell by looking at the picture?’ and ‘What questions do you have about your picture’ as part of their topic on water. They were encouraged to write down whatever they thought of – there were no wrong answers. What skills will be covered? Thinking: Asking questions; generating and developing ideas; thinking about cause and effect and making inferences; linking and lateral thinking.

10 NGfL CYMRU GCaD Developing Skills in ESDGC – Timelines to the Future What are Timelines to the Future? Young people enjoy thinking about the future. Use the frames provided to encourage them to think what is likely to happen in the future (probable), what may happen (possible) and what they would like to happen in the future (preferable). Once they have done this they can begin to think about the kinds of actions needed to take them to a preferable future and the part they themselves can play.
