Collaborative idea generation for ELT

The Intellectual Property Office are in charge of copyrights, patents and trademarks (among other things) issued and managed in the UK. Together with Aardman Animations, the creators of Wallace and Gromit, they put together an exhibition combining some of Wallace’s most entertaining inventions and information about what intellectual property is. It was fun and engaging, and best of all, I got some postcards to bring home. I saw it at the Life Science Centre in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK, and there will be more prompts from there in the future, so watch this space.

How would you use these postcards in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context they are used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)
