After the Video: Classroom Activities to do In the Flipped Lesson

For some time now I have been making flipped videos for my class. It's great and I love having extra time in class to do more exciting activities. However, I do find thinking of the exciting and useful activities the hardest part of the flipped learning business. Therefore I have decided to document the ideas which I have used (or want to use) with my primary class.

I try to bear Blooms Taxonomy in mind when including activities to my lessons. If it isn't from the top branches, I generally don't bother with a flipped lesson.


So here are some ideas:

  • Create a TV Quiz about the topic...maybe not Numberwang though

  • Play Just a Minute

  • Create a board game
  • Design a lesson for another class about the topic
  • Create an Infographic

  • Make a model of it

  • Write an editorial about the topic - evaluating both sides of an argument
  • Create a quiz - I love Kahoot for this
There are, of course, lots of other great things we could do in our classes. I want to add to this collection - any ideas? Please drop me a line: @DerEyken or
