Aims and objectives
The activity aims to allow children to understand the importance
of non-verbal gestures in communication and to explore how people
with limited verbal ability can still be effective communicators.
No previous knowledge is required for this activity.
In the classroom
A series of 'non-verbal' animations need to be matched to an appropriate
statement. This activity works really well if used with an interactive
whiteboard. As a ‘whole’ class resource this will stimulate
discussion and support the development of children’s awareness
of people who may be less able than themselves.
