In Folding booklets students are given a piece of A4 paper which they fold to form a 16 page booklet and, without cutting the folds in the paper, are challenged to number the pages of their booklet, compare their results and investigate patterns. This task could initially be done for a four, then eight page booklet.
Placing adverts requires some careful consideration about the dimensions of each advertisement, and the factors of the size of the page.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
