2. Share with the community a way you would like to introduce networks into the classroom to make it tangible or visible for primary students. It could be using a resource you have found or your own idea or thoughts.
I would introduce networks into the classroom by firstly creating a fun, engaging slideshow that explains what networks are and then do an activity where I would put up pictures of different objects and as a whole class, let them individually decide whether it is connected or not.
Another activity I would do (possibly aimed at older primary students) where I would give each student a map of a rail network map and give each student a starting point and a destination. Each student will work out how to get from their starting point to their destination, taking note of the certain rail line and if they will need to change trains ect.
Once done, I would explain how rail networks work similar to computer networks.
