FRANCINE THE BURROWING FROG OF THE HOT DESERT - ANIMAL ODDITY PART 1

FRANCINE THE BURROWING FROG OF THE HOT DESERT - ANIMAL ODDITY PART 1

Students are usually interested in the unusual, the different or the odd. Here's an example of 3 -probably 4 - animals of the desert who in terms of their basic biology don't seem to be suited to the hot desert environment. This first unit about a burrowing frog shows how this variety of frog - a water-loving animal can sustain itself in basically a water-deficient environment. This can be used as a standalone unit in Primary or lower Secondary classes. For some Primary students the vocabulary and concepts may be a little difficult. If that's the case you can just screen the material and discuss Francine's story. At a more detailed level this unit is about adaptation and species sustainability. You may wish to include it in your destination studies; arid lands studies or location studies or you may just be looking for something ready made for your students. The debate at the end is designed to check student level of understanding. The attachments are included so that you can provide copies - either in black and white or colour. Find out how Francine copes in two environments - the underground micro-environment and the above ground macro-environment. This is part 1 of the series on animal oddities.

National Day of the People's Republic of China - PowerPoint + 31 Ways To Use This Resource In Class

National Day of the People's Republic of China - PowerPoint + 31 Ways To Use This Resource In Class

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different materials being shown in each of the photos. I have added a second PowerPoint presentation which shows you how you could use this teaching resource in 31 different, fun ways in the classroom to make sure you get the most out of this teaching resource. I also create a Chinese Landscape Painting book for students. The basics are laid out to help them and then they can use water colours to complete the picture. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about China. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different Chinese activities. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
