Multiple Intelligences Learning Centre: Activities are based on Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences.
For an introduction to the intelligences click here.

 On this web site you will find:

Activities at two levels, based around Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences.
Information necessary to complete the activities. This information is at three levels of difficulty, ranging from pictures with captions to Internet site links.
Labels, instruction sheets, checklists for ready for you to print out, to put together your Learning Centre.

An Approach:
The way you approach, use, manage this unit is totally up to you. Some ideas are ...

Activities can be printed out, and available in a learning centre OR they can be accessed on the computer.
Information could be printed out from the computer, labelled (with a key word or phrase) and made available in a learning centre OR it can be accessed on the computer OR a combination of print-outs and use of the computer.
You may decide to use your computer(s) for the students to present their work and have information printed out for them to access independently.
You may choose to approach an activity as a whole class OR students could work on activities independently.
You may decide that you want each student to complete one activity OR that they complete a selection of activities. You may choose to select / limit the activities that you offer them.
If you have limited access to computers, you may decide to timetable students onto the computer during the day, for about 30 minutes each. To best use their time, it would be advisable for them to have selected an activity before arriving at the computer. This may mean that they miss maths or spelling or sport ... but it will be just once!
Supplement the Internet site with other information sources such as books or by talking to people who lived during the war years ( by inviting them to the class to talk, by holding a phone conference or by sending questions via fax or e-mail).

Read through the activities and be familiar with the information pages yourself, before introducing them to your students!
