The blob tree allows students to reflect on their confidence levels with regards to their learning. At the start of a: unit; concept or lesson students need to circle the blob man that represents their feelings about the idea, skill or topic they are about to undertake. Pupils should write next to it reasons why they have chosen that particular blob man.
In the middle / end of a lesson or both
Ask them circle a blob man that represents their feelings now. Again, get pupils to write next to it why they have chosen that blob man. You should see progress in their confidence about a particular topic and if not, it will highlight the areas that need to be addresses.
