HL IB Biology students play at charades for enzymes

It is well documented that young adults have a need for play in their daily lives, and that combining learning with play can be successful.

In my own practice I am curious about the process of ‘ constructing memory’ and the role in learning. I have learnt that for many students combining a word with a kinaesthetic motion enhances retention.

This morning as a bit of fun and as a lesson summary, the class made charades for the enzymes involved in DNA replication.
