Create A Physical Web With An Apple

A Physical Web, which is a three-dimensional, kinaesthetic Mind Map, can be created using any Participatory Manipulative (PM).

One easy way to do this is by using an apple, toothpicks, sticky notes, blu tack and markers.

First, read or dissect the information to be used, learned, created, or dissected.  Write keywords or ideas on sticky notes.

Then attach the notes to the toothpick using blu-tack.  Place the toothpicks into the apple in any design or manner. 

Some students omitted the blu-tack and simply pierced the notes 
with the toothpicks to attach them.  

Students create a web of the information to be learned.

This method allows the information to be seen, touched and organised.  Through this process, the kinaesthetic nature of the activity allows for greater comprehension and learning.
