In year to we practice a lot of descriptions and recipies at the moment.
The "learn to learn"-set is really good to describe a building instruction to a partner. The children sit "back to back" and one children ist discribing and the other children needs to put the right bricks at the right place. Afterwards the children checked the results and gave eachother some advices for discribing.
It was really brilliant that they saw their results of their discription so closely afterwards and realized their mistakes by their own.
