Learners are introduced to the idea that the police use footprints to estimate the height of criminals. Their prior knowledge is activated through a series of questions. They test the police’s idea by considering how they might measure their own height by using their feet, thinking critically and creatively. Then, learners test the idea by using their footprints to measure their height and comparing with others’ findings.
