OCEAN PLASTIC- 3 whole lessons with IT based pairs activity- fully scaffolded & engaging!

This resource could be used as part of an Environmental Issues SoW. The aims are to reduce the amount of plastic used in your school through the class creating persuasive adverts encouraging their peers to buy reusable bottles. Each lesson uses a variety of learning techniques based on enquiry and all video links are in the notes section of each slide. I will then display the students work around the school and see if it has any impact! Water consumption is incredibly important for concentration and should be encouraged within the school environment. These lessons could also be used to create cross curricular links in DT and Art and potentially provide the design for school merchandise! Please review if you download! Enjoy :)

World Traveler Social Studies & Math Research Project Continents Elapsed Time

World Traveler Social Studies & Math Research Project Continents Elapsed Time

This is a research-based learning project that integrates social studies, math, and writing. To complete this project, students will go on a world tour of six different countries around the world. Through their travels, they will learn the location of these countries along with important facts. To get to each destination, students must use their budgeted money to buy plane tickets. They will use subtraction to calculate how much money they have left after each purchase and determine the length of each flight (elapsed time). They will also mark each location on a world map and label the continents. After traveling to all six destinations, students will use 3-digit addition to calculate the total money spent. They will also write a descriptive paragraph about a landmark of their choice and an opinion paragraph about the location they would like to visit again. Includes: ✓ Teacher instructions ✓ World map in color and black/white ✓ 12-page passport booklet ✓ Customs stamps for each country ✓ Boarding passes/airline tickets ✓ Travel book to hold tickets and stamps ✓ Answer keys The passport book is where students will record their work. They will research each location to complete its page in the passport. They will find the country, continent, capital city, official language, currency, climate, and important landmark. Kid-safe website suggestions for conducting research are included. The first page of the passport is the travel budget. Students will use this page to keep track of their tickets and calculate how much money they have left after each purchase. The last three pages of the passport include a landmark matching activity, a page with addition, subtraction, and elapsed time questions, and the descriptive and opinion writing activities. The countries students will visit include: • Australia • Brazil • China • Egypt • Germany • Russia
