Record and retain

Reflect on the experience, through discussing, writing and drawing, for example.

Encourage learners to talk amongst themselves about what they saw, heard, smelled and thought. Previous knowledge the students may have about the topic can be included in the discussions. Teachers may prompt learners to link what they already knew with what just happened. This can be done outside the classroom setting, perhaps on the way back from a field trip. The teacher's role is to ask questions, listen carefully and help students to articulate and reflect.
