Skooville Challenge Cards

Age Range: 7 - 11

Skooville Challenge Cards

Skooville is a safe social network for children. It has a number of fantastic tools for children to help them to learn valuable ICT and eSafety skills.

To help teachers to use the site effectively in their classrooms, we have created a set of challenge cards that can be used in a number of different ways:

  • Choose one of the cards and ask all of the children in your class to try that challenge.
  • Give out all of the cards so that every child has a different one. Can they complete the challenge that they have been given?
  • Ask your children to complete as many of the challenges as they can over a given period of time (e.g. a term). Skooville Teacher awards can be given to children who complete the most.
  • Give each child a card and ask them to teach a partner how to complete that challenge.
  • Ask the pupils to write a set of instructions that teaches others how to complete the challenge shown on their card.
  • Give the cards out and ask children to complete one (or more) of them as a homework activity.
  • Use the cards as part of ICT lessons and during a Skooville club.
  • Ask your class to think of other challenges that they could complete on Skooville. Could they make their own set of cards?
