Focus on: Traffic Light

Using Edward de Bono’s 6 Thinking Hats to explain and explore the Traffic Lights system:

WHITE HAT ~ Facts: What is the Traffic Light system? What does it look like?

The different colours of the traffic light have different meanings:

  1. RED LIGHT means “I don’t understand. Can we go over this again?”;
  2. YELLOW LIGHT means “I think that I understand but I might need help doing it on my own.”;
  3. and GREEN LIGHT means”I understand and can do this on my own   “put up on the wall for reference

These are pictures of the Traffic Light system I use in my classroom and at the bottom is a mini poster I made myself.
