'Hexagonal Thinking' featured as part of our CPD Cluster Day 22/23. In this section you will find a template and a step by step explanatory video for designing Hexagons as a classroom resource.
Hexagonal thinking is a creative mode for discussion that allows learners to think about concepts and connections in a different way.
The learning occurs as students make connections between the four strands of Junior Cycle Science, based on the key term, or image, displayed on each hexagon. Students are then given the opportunity to justify the connections they make. This is a great way to support student collaboration, as students discuss and justify their decisions, learning from each other. As the teacher, these conversations and justifications can be assessed to gauge understanding.
