Sequence Information
Sequence: Apollo 11 - Jigsaw Lesson
A lesson on the Apollo 11 mission to the moon using the Jigsaw teaching strategy.

In this lesson we will explore the amazing voyage of the Apollo 11 Mission!

First, we will split you as per your regular Home team. Then, we will split the Apollo 11 lesson into 5 content units and each member of your Home team will be allocated to a content unit.

Second, each member of the Home teams will be then review their content unit allocated to them and afterwards discuss and summarise the content unit with other members of other home teams. So each member of your home team will become an "expert" on their respective content unit. 

Third, after the summary for each content unit is completed by the "expert teams", then you will come back to your home team where you will present and explain the content unit summary to the other members of your home team. 

Fourth, After each member of your home team presents the summary of their own content unit, we will all take a quiz on what we've learnt in the lesson.
