    Hi Folks,
    I am a trainee teacher (school-centered) I have been given my first bit of teaching to do -not a great deal but I am looking for inspiration..I have to do a 5 min intro to the lesson on renewable and non-renewable energy sources in science for year 8.I'm thinking of a game of some sort ,-but nothing that will raise the energy in room too much -does anyone have any ideas?

    If you suggest some ideas of your own and ask people what they think, you would be more likely to get some useful responses.

    I used to have this board game/ booklet that I made for GCSE physics when revising renewable and non-renewable energy with my weaker Year 11 class, however, I have since lost the file sadly.

    The board game was accompanied with a booklet which had tasks in it; consolidation questions, exam questions, fill in the blanks, draw a picture etc.. for outcomes noted in the spec.

    This board game was essentially a snakes and ladders game, where students roll the dice and depending on where they land (e.g. block 4 -- look at page 4 of the booklet) they had to complete the task.

    The first to win, in their groups, would then win a prize (a chocolate bar).

    Just to clarify, do you mean you just have to do a five minute introduction and then the regular teacher takes over or are you doing the whole lesson but only want ideas for the intro?
