Lesson ideas

 

  • Let your pupils create real life activities on Plotagon. For example if your subject matter is ‘traffic and asking directions’, you can ask them to create a real dialogue with a passer-by. In this way they practise their vocabulary in a fun way. You can make every possible dialogue a more interesting activity with Plotagon.

 

  • Let your pupils recreate scenes from books using Plotagon, different groups of pupils will interpret the scenes in different ways. Afterwards you can discuss the reason for the differences in a class-based conversation. This is a fun and interactive way to tackle literature and reading with your pupils.

 

  • Create a few animations for your pupils without any text. Have them come up with the dialogues themselves according to what fits through the setting. This trains your pupils’ deduction skills as well as their active vocabulary
