Over the summer months the laminating machines in many schools will be regularly rolling as teachers pop in to prepare materials for the start of the school year. When trimming your laminated items, remember to save the excess – it makes a wonderful tactile tool I call Laminate Layers. Staple together as many strips as you need and have students graphically portray concepts that have a layered effect. Here are two ideas from some high school teachers attending one of my recent workshops on differentiation.

That is a great idea to use in a math classroom. I am wondering if that would work on a Cell project in a biology classroom? Students could layer/create a 3D model of a cell. It would be a great way to show all the different components of a cell, and it would be a great visual for students. The layers could also serve as a flip book for something. I could see students drawing out a cell, for example, and drawing a different component on each piece. This would be something that could be erased and reused.
