The Bloom Buster helps with planning lesson objectives, questioning and activities. It provides definitions and question/task ideas for 90 key words related to Bloom’s taxonomy of educational objectives.

The 90 words are split equally into 6 categories – knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation, based on the original taxonomy. There are also suggested question stems and products you might wish to see from a lesson. The crux is that it will hopefully help make your lesson planning easier. Enjoy!
