Australia booklet

Australia booklet

This was created for our Australian Day we had in Y5. You need to use this resource in conjunction with the ticket resource. I placed information sheets around the class on 4 tables alongside books about Australia. Then, on two tables I had artefacts I made myself - with information to explain it. I had a range of artefacts stuff. The children loved it and thought it was all for real. They used this booklet to gather information (from the sheets/books), they could draw images of the artefacts and write about it. This is why you will see the different sections. I kept if small as the activity was only for about 20-30 minutes - after a discussion about locality, climate, etc. I had a suitcase with a variety of clothes for different seasons and we had a little discussion about the current season and what type of clothes to pack (for the flight activity that was due after the museum activity). I hope you find it useful.

Australia Day - Museum Tickets

Australia Day - Museum Tickets

We had an Australian Day and different ‘activities’. One activity was the ‘museum’ whereby children had to research artefacts and other information. To make it more fun, they had to present their tickets before they could enter the ‘museum’, which was a class set up with everything around the room. They had a little booklet (see booklet resource) and had to complete the booklet by using the resources in the ‘museum’.

KARUMBA - THE ONLY MAJOR PORT ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA AUSTRALIA

KARUMBA - THE ONLY MAJOR PORT ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA AUSTRALIA

Through a series of 5 stories students will gain an understanding of the layout and function of this remote port. Many Australians are aware that Karumba exists but regard it as a destination for fishing for Barramundi and crocodile spotting. The “Gery nomads” - retired travellers usually towing caravans or arriving in motor homes - often put Karumba on their bucket list of places to visit. There is much more to Karumba than fishing and crocodile viewing. Take your students along the stretch of the Karumba Port near the mouth of the Norman River and there are large buildings which indicate other functions. Learn about Krys the crocodile of unbelievable proportions. Pass the rusting wreck in the mangroves and wonder how it arrived there. Go past the sign where cattle yards exist and recognise the prohibited access. Go past the dredge as it moves back into deeper water to dredge the channel from the deeper waters of the Gulf of Carpentaria and recognise by research how important that process to the population of the town. Look inland to discover the very large Century zinc mine at Lawn Hill and find out how it is connected to the zinc pellet processing plant at Karumba. Then, like the recent advertising programme from the local tourist operators, become aware of the environmental assets in landscape and a range of bird life. Understand why they have included their heading “There’s more to Karumba than fishing and crocodiles”. Find out why those visiting Karumba need to come in the cooler months of the year and avoid the hotter summer months. The attachments assist student understanding. The fill-in attachments could be used to support a type of tutorial approach where the numbered sections matching the page numbers could be screened and the students with some discussion could fill in the answers to provide a record of Karumba. Enjoy the excursion to Karumba but if you are involved in bird watching in the mangroves or on the lowland marshes on the entry road from Normanton, take time to read the warning -“crocodiles eat birds and bird watchers”.

Y3/4 Polar Environments - Locate the Coldest Places and Compare to Others

Y3/4 Polar Environments - Locate the Coldest Places and Compare to Others

This is a Y3/4 topic (geography) lesson on polar environments. The lesson teaches pupils how we measure temperature, how the celcius scale works and what temperatures you would typically expect to record in given scenarios. If your school has access to a class set of thermometers, you could add an extra section where pupils measure temperatures around the classroom/school premises. The main activity involves researching the winter and summer average highs/lows in different parts of the world, including one location each in the Arctic and Antarctic. It is intended that pupils work in mixed ability pairs and they will need an ipad and an atlas in each pair.

Rivers and the Water Cycle 'WOW'/'Launch'/Topic Introduction day Y3/4 - ENTIRE DAY'S RESOURCING!

Rivers and the Water Cycle 'WOW'/'Launch'/Topic Introduction day Y3/4 - ENTIRE DAY'S RESOURCING!

This is a topic introduction day (‘wow’ day/‘launch’ day) for a Y3 or 4 class about to start a topic on rivers and the water cycle. The morning involves lots of new learning - including an introduction to the key content of the topic. There are two practical experiments (obviously you will need to source the items for these beforehand) - one a simple evaporation/condensation demonstration and the other is the well-known ‘shaving foam cloud’ experiment! The afternoon is more art/music based, featuring a look at the inspiration French impressionists took from rivers/water and the inspiration many classical composers took from this topic. Finally, if you have a copy of Wind in the Willows to hand, this is an ideal topic-themed way to round the day off. Alternatively, look up the 1983 animated version on YouTube!

GCSE 9-1; Climate change - The Big Dry, Australia El Nino drought case study

GCSE 9-1; Climate change - The Big Dry, Australia El Nino drought case study

This lesson is a case study of the Big Dry, Australia. The lesson starts by recapping El Nino and explaining how this causes drought. There is an examination question and mark scheme and a gap fill exercise, which develops into a model answer for this question when complete. Next the students are introduced to the effects of drought in Australia via a YouTube clip and photographs of the effects. The students are given the task of classifying facts about the effects into social and economic categories before using these and making links between them to construct PEE paragraphs. One paragraph ahs been completed for them and they are required to write two of their own. After that the students are given a table of adaptations. They have to classify these by scale before selecting the adaptation that they believe to be the most effective and justifying their choice. All resources are included in the PowerPoint.
