Dangerous Aussie Animals - For Ages: 10 – 12 Years

Dangerous Aussie Animals - For Ages: 10 – 12 Years

Children love learning about animals and the animals that intrigue them most are dangerous animals which inhabit their part of the world. Crocodiles, snakes, stingers and other deadly sea creatures which lurk in the Australian oceans are used as tools to teach students about the biology of living things, the relationship between animals and the environment, and the interdependence of life. The practical activities in Dangerous Aussie Animals are designed to get students involved in science lessons and to remember information. The idea behind the book is that students will learn key concepts in the curriculum through enjoyment and involvement. To make life easy for the teacher answers are provided at the back. This is a Photocopy Master ebook (46 pages) and activity pages may be photocopied for use in the classroom. Our ebooks are in pdf format. Edubooks is an imprint of Ready-Ed Publications.

Earth and Space Sciences

Earth and Space Sciences

The Earth and Space Sciences Unit contains all of the lessons from the Earth's Systems and Space Systems packets. These lessons include, "Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Water Cycle, Rock Cycle, Earth History, Seasons, Phases of the Moon, Eclipses, and Solar System." They support MS-ESS1 (Earth's Place in the Universe) and MS-ESS2 (Earth's Systems) of the NGSS. The handouts and included answer keys work together with videos and links found at http://www.howaboutscience.com/earth-and-space-science. Students may work individually if everyone has an internet connected device. If not, the videos can be projected and the handouts filled out as a group. Once students complete a handout, you may choose to discuss the answers and play the Kahout! (click the link on the home page to learn more about Kahouts!) Here are a few things to consider. If students are working individually it is helpful, but not required to have headphones or earbuds. If the sound is kept low even a large class of students can be successful without them. Also, because students find the directions very easy to follow, these are perfect for substitute teachers. And, because the videos are online, students with internet connections at home don't have to be at school to complete an assignment. My classes are typically action packed with labs and activities, but these video-based lessons require careful listening and focus. My classes are never quieter, which is kind of nice on occasion. Note! I would suggest doing a trial run before purchasing if you plan to have a large class of students working at individual computers. Internet connection speeds vary which may cause videos to load slowly. You might have everyone log on and try my free resource on TpT (or just go to a lesson and choose something) just to be sure you aren't going to have connection issues. If you do, then you can always project the videos and complete the handouts as a group. The video materials chosen are based on length, clarity, quality and how closely they align with the national standards. The lesson could be added as an introduction or as further exploration and could be completed as one activity or broken into smaller segments. "How About Science?" materials can be incorporated into your existing unit in various ways depending on your style of teaching and the ability level of your students. For more information about how to get the most out of How About Science?, click the Teacher's Guide in the menu bar on the website.
