The Channel Tunnel Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Structures

The Channel Tunnel Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Structures

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘The Channel Tunnel’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

GCSE Product Design Design and Technology - Materials properties terminology cards - revision

GCSE Product Design Design and Technology - Materials properties terminology cards - revision

Blank cards and the card with answers/descriptions on are supplied. Can be used as a whole lesson or as a revision lesson/activity. Lesson to go with doesn’t cover the environmental properties but works well as a whole lesson. Print page 1 as their starter activity. Then I got the students to cut up their own cards and match the keyword (on the wordsearch) to the decription and the picture on the cards. The pictures are really effective in helping them remember which property means what. Following that there are some quizes you can get them to do - questioning each other etc. Extension to include written descriptions of materials they have been studying linking with the material properties.
