We started by looking at ways people communicate. Body language, words, writing, pictures, smoke, sound, binary etc. We then discussed why we use different ways. We decided as a class the top ten most effective ways and went outside. From different spaces (far apart, close, around a corner, blind, deaf, interrupted) they tried to send messages. They soon discovered that what they thought were easy became useless in some situations. To end with they had to try to come up with a code or language that was most practical for the most amount of situations.
