Learning In Depth Projects
LID Update - April 14th 2020
For anyone unsure of what to do for their LID project: this term we will be looking at Ancient Greece so take your LID topic and look at that part of Ancient Greece. If art and fashion is your LID topic you might look at Ancient Greek vase designs or the clothes they wore to start with. If you are doing weapons you might look at Greek armies or Spartans. The Greek myths are very interesting and this might be a place a lot of you could start especially if you are doing animals or myths and legends of course. Ask me if you are unsure of what to do (tell me what your LID topic is when you ask please). You can present your work in any creative way you like either on Google using slides or docs or by creating models or work at home.
If you really want to challenge yourself while you are off from school see if you can take your project work to another level. Have a think about the following things:
- Find something that is really weird or odd about your topic.
- Find something that is gross or icky about your topic (ex. the bagpipe was originally made from the whole skin of a dead sheep)
- Create some really interesting maths linked to your project work.
- Make a list of some really crazy comparisons (ex. a blue whale can weigh as much as 30 elephants):
- Identify something unusual or unique about a person involved with your topic (ex. Shakespeare reportedly invented the word “bubble”)
- Can you create a piece of LID work for each of the subjects you learn about in school?
- With permission from your parents/carers, can you email an expert/somebody famous linked to your project with a view to getting them to send some information back?
Take a photo of your work and upload it to your Google Classroom.
