T & L activity of the week – top trumps.

This strategy is an engaging and fun way of encouraging evaluative thinking. It requires students to analyse, compare, contrast and rank information and ideas.

       This activity works best when students produce their own trump cards

       The following example is from a PE lesson but trump cards can be used in many different ways!

       In groups students agree on five key characteristics needed to be a Premier League football referee.

       They then create cards for different referees using data and examples from recent matches to assess their performance across the five characteristics

       Students then play the trading game of top trumps  using their cards

       This activity can be easily differentiated depending upon how much information you give to the students
