CHINA- Creative and independent activities- SEN/ G+TFRIENDLY

CHINA- Creative and independent activities- SEN/ G+TFRIENDLY

Collection of lessons and worksheets that I created for a particularly challenging year 7, with a wide academic gap and poor literacy skills. The students really enjoyed learning about China and it’s particularly good to run the SoW over the Chinese New Year. Green Pen and reflective tasks to help the students progress alongside engaging topics and lot of high level vocab. All tasks scaffolded and ppts have teacher instructions and samples. Extension tasks with every lesson. Please review if you download! Thanks :)

An independent entire lesson that I set as cover work. The students engage well with this activity and enjoy learning about the Panda’s and the vocabulary which is varied to challenge G+T students. There are 3 separate tasks, which have potential to be peer assessed and shared, the last task is arguing against a quote and with sentence starters success criteria. Please review if downloaded! Thanks!

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of  CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

Students consistently enjoy this lesson and enjoy learning about the unique animals and plants of each region. Depending on the class, this carousel could last 1-2 lessons and involves each student travelling to different habitats and completing a range of diverse and engaging tasks indepedently. You will need to set up the classroom into 4 large tables which can seat 1/4 of the class. I usually blue tack the sheets to the desks and surrounding walls and double print so that everyone can choose which tasks they’d like to complete at each station. Lots of potential for PA of answers and I usually put this work on display and talk through the IUCN red list/show them videos of the animals in China.
