    What a fantastically ingenious idea! :eek:
  3. Doesn't sound too yummy to me! Can you think of anything to make my history lessons a wee bit more exciting?

    Hmm I might try that with my bottom set year 9 in music! Not sure the marshmallows would get anywhere near the microwave part though, just straight into their mouths!

    How about re-enacting of the the demise of Joan of Arc on the playing field?

    Re-enact famous battles with your class mates using rolled up newspaper (swords), & water bombs (canon's), or water pistols (for muskets, about as effective :D )

    Does this help?
  7. How much fun would that be? Do you think I should try it with my 3rd years in 5 mins when they come in? Do you think I'd still have a job at 3.45?

    Of course the one I always enjoyed was "The Wound Man" whilst doing History of Medicine. We got to make a lifesized paper mache wound man complete with wounds!, kept us going for loads of lessons.

    I saw this done for one of the Royal Institute Christmas Lectures a few years ago. (yes I know watching them is sad, but I'm an engineer and hence trained and licensed to be a BOC)
    It was a really effective and simple way to demonstrate a bit of a mind blowing subject.
